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?

Why can't these be news headlines instead of some white guy killing a black guy.

Isn't every baby part of the next generation?

and?

I work with Planarians in my lab a lot. Them fully regrowing their body isn't a new discovery in the least. I'm not even sure how they could quantify the flatworms keeping their memories, though. Smells like ******** research.

first thing that came to mind when i read the artificial heart one

The genetic opera is better.

Repomen is a ripoff of Repo The Genetic Opera.

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

Test tube baby reminds me of Gattaca.

the ability to regrow memories

I don't think FJ users understand the power of that statement, or what it means to science
#182 to #126 - traveller (07/15/2013) [-]
No, the worm works like that because of it's genetics and epigenetic coding. Which would be unreasonable to change in an ageing Human (not that we can yet).
User avatar #139 to #126 - evilpotato (07/15/2013) [-]
Because it only remembers what the removed head remembers.

Have you ever wondered if it's possible to live forever.

Like, theoretically speaking, what if you were to live to say, 70, and then have all of your organs transplanted with that of much younger quality. It sounds retarded kind of, but I mean, I wouldn't be surprised per se.

There's a movie that involves that. It's called Mr. Nobody and is one of my favourites.
User avatar #121 to #120 - udei (07/15/2013) [-]
i think that the main problem is that all of your cells just stop regrowing so, even if all your vital organs are replaced it wont be enough, but thats just my opinion
#119 - forgottenmyshorts (07/15/2013) [-]
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?
#116 - Jctomlinson (07/15/2013) [-]
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)?
