UW-Green Bay Prof. Greg Aldrete has gotten plenty of attention for his research on — and recreation of — ancient armor made of linen. Now his work with the armor, called linothorax, will be featured in a Wednesday (Nov. 9) episode of the Discovery Channel program “Penn & Teller Tell a Lie” (footage was filmed on campus this summer). The show features the famous comedy-magic duo testing outrageous claims, most of which are actually true and supported by scientific evidence. Viewers vote live during the program to decide which story is a lie. Claims on Wednesday’s 9 p.m. show, according to local TV listings, “include a linen shirt can stop an arrow and a snail can crawl on a razor’s edge.” Spoiler alert: Aldrete’s stuff works. (We are unable to speak for the snail).
