This week: Late this week, so it's a short one, but I think you'll like it.
Hey there folks,
Sorry for the late one this week, but but I couldn't seem to get my act together. Someone pointed me to this article: https://www.wired.com/story/ideas-jason-pontin-genetic-engineering-for-mars/ which is about the morals and problems of genetic engineering and contains this quote: In the first stage of his plan, Mason is combining human cells with a gene called Dsup, unique to the indestructible tardigrade, that suppresses DNA breaks from radiation. Tardigrades can survive the vacuum of space; perhaps their genes might make us more fit for space, too. His lab has also created an artificial construct of the gene p53, involved in preventing cancer, which it hopes later to insert into a human cell.
Which is something i actually used in a comic from a couple of years ago called The Hunt. Here it is.
The world is a wonder, even when it seems to be going down in flames. Remember this quote from Ian MacKaye: I burn a fire to stay cool
I burn myself,
I am the fuel
