Regrowing memories seems cool. Think we could engineer that for humans and cure Alzheimers?

Test tube baby reminds me of Gattaca.

Artificial heart? I can now become a galifreyan!

test tube babies, functioning artificial hearts... we're gathering all the pieces we need for an army of clone cyborgs.

I don't know how I feel about the first one. To me it seems like we'd be taking the first steps towards a world like that depicted in Gattaca . has anybody else seen that movie?

That first one makes me so happy, i've been waiting for this day. Finally we can get rid of all the ******* useless mental disabled people. No more severely mentally retarded people being leeches on everyone around them. Finally they can actually be a productive member of society. They're ******* parasites and I can't wait until we exterminate them. Well not really exterminate because we just wont allow any useless retards to be born.

This response makes me sick that there are people like you in the world and you don't even have the guts to show who you are.

I agree that the first one is a good thing, it will decrease suffering from horrible genetic disease. However I do not agree with the way you expressed it. My brother is disabled and he has a job and contributes to society with volunteer work. I have worked with people like that for years and your views are disgusting and stupid, hopefully when that technology is widely available they will find a way to remove the gene that causes ridiculous views like yours.

I don't mean to be a fun killer, but planarian worms and their regenerative abilities were known to science for a long time. In 1955 they did experiments that included exposing planarians to bright light and electric shocks and then they would cut them in half and let them regenerate. Once that was done they just exposed them to bright light, but they would react as if they were getting shocked. Similar experiment was done in 1962 where they would cut one worm into pieces and fed him to other planarians and they would also start reacting to bright light. The whole point of the experiment is that memory can be transferred chemically.

My problem with test-tube babies is that you will have to explain to them they were someone's science project.

I thought we were already using artificial hearts?

I hope 'observed' also means 'recorded' and/or 'photographed'. Would sure like to see that. Does anyone Sciency want to chime in on such Space-ness advancements?

I love these things. Keep em coming.

Artificial heart?
That's ******* huge for science
You know how many people will be able to live now because of an artificial heart (if it works)?

As a guy that believes there is no soul and that who we are is the result of our brain, the worm title shook my beliefs until I read the article.

It's posts like these that make me think we are making great advancements in society, then I go to Wal-Mart.

I think a better name for these posts is "This week in research and development".
Cuz science is just the tool.. It is kinda like saying this week in hammer and nails and you show pics of houses.

And yet we are still unable to post pictures with high resolutions. Am I the only one who's anal about this stuff?
