At the same time Universal Studios is filming Jurassic World the new upcoming hit sequel to Jurassic Parkmovie trilogy, real scientist are changing the future as we know it. Think bigger then Terminator’s Skynet and even bigger than all the news you’ve seen and stories you’ve heard of cloning. Scientist are working around the clock in a top-secret research facility jointly funded by technology and search engine mammath Google, entrepreneur and adventurer Richard Branson who is Dr. Yes at Virgin, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundationand a few other undisclosed donors. Their research is primary focused on genetic research and cloning technology to help cure some of the world’s most deadly diseases and to pro-long life.
However, there is a Catch-22 in order to revive cells in the ways needed for this research they had to splice DNA from several unlikely candidates, one which includes DNA found in a pre ice age block of ice. Believe it or not, the DNA being used is from a relative of the extinct dinosaur Tyrannosaurus Rex, commonly referred to as T-Rex, named “Nanuqsaurus hoglundi”. The amazing but scary part is that scientist have successfully cloned a hybrid DNA relative of this tiny T-Rex. Reports say the specimen did not survive long but the scientist confirmed today they will be able to overcome this challenge by the end of 2016. When they do, they will use the tiny T-Rex’s newly generated hybrid DNA to help develop cancer curing drugs. Why do they need to make a living breathing animal to do this? Scientist say they will need large amounts of DNA in living tissue such as blood from the specimens to successfully produce these important drugs.
The question is, where are they going to put these new dinosaurs while they are extracting the much needed hybrid DNA? How big are these tiny T-Rex hybrids? Will the secured location be shielded from the general public in ways better then the fictional movie Jurassic Park portrayed? Could this be the biggest breakthrough in history?
