Extinct gene brought back to life!!!!Tasmanian Tiger!!!!


www.smh.com.au

In a world first, scientists have extracted a gene from the extinct Tasmanian tiger and successfully inserted it into a mouse embryo.

It is the first time a gene from any extinct animal has been brought back to life inside another living creature.

Yes,we are advancing at an extreme rate where sci-fi is quickly becoming reality-as always is the case.It seems like ever since 1947(The Roswell Crash)we have been accelerating at a unreal pace compared to previous years prior to 47'.(Alien help,or a new renaissance?)

Those possibilities are not something i will even pretend to know the truth of - but i definitely agree our rate of technological advancement in the last 60 years seems to be phenomenal......

That's absolutely amazing. I just hope we don't get in over our heads.... like in JP haha.

A lot of sci-fi isn't just entertainment, but ideas from the mind of humans, and you know how ideas can become reality.

I think as long as we don't have too many wars or anything else (disease etc) to slow us down, that we will advance at an even faster rate this century. Hope I live long enough!

It is most certainly an interesting time to be alive - to me it feels like the dawn of a new awakening which will be epic in its impact - i feel the best is by far yet to come.....

Last year I read of scientist wanting to introduce extinct mammoth genes into elephant embryos. Now just reading drudge the uk got the go ahead to make a half human half animal embryo.
It surely is a brave new world. Scary too.

Jurassic park was already a reality.

It was a publicity stunt to desensitize the public to the reality.

The human race, as a whole, is the epitome of stupidity. We are already "in [well] over our heads."

This is great news, OP!

Finally, a science story that makes the heart sing, instead of causing it to cower in fear....

A past friend of mine (who I no longer keep in touch with) told me that, years ago, he saw a Tassie Tiger in the Victorian bush.

I have no reason to doubt him. He has no reason to fabricate the story. He wass also a very perceptive and intelligent person who was no-ones fool.

I'd like to think that there are still some left in the wild, yet to be found.

Interesting this has come up - just recently the pgymy hippopotamus which was thought to be extinct was found alive in the wild.

Who is to say the same is not true of the Tassie Tiger?

While this is a stunning advancement make no mistake, the biological implications Jurassic Park makes are fantasies.

Have a good read of this:en.wikipedia.org...

Bringing extinct organisms back to life is well beyond the realm of possibility currently.

Well, from what "WE" the public know.

Bringing back extinct organisms is not that hard. Just think about it. Stem cells, neon mice. They're showing you the little stuff to ready you for the big stuff. A slow acceptance.
