Paleontologists, Geneticists Say They Can Recreate Living Dinosaurs Within The Next 5 Years
Don’t we already know how this movie’s going to end?
In a potentially terrifying case of life imitating art, the renowned paleontologist who served as the inspiration for Jurassic Parkprotagonist Dr. Alan Grant is spearheading genetic research that could engineer dinosaurs back into existence within the next five to 10 years, he says.
While Dr. Jack Horner, who has consulted on all four Jurassic films, initially believed the key to recreating the prehistoric creatures lied in working with ancient DNA strands, further study about DNA degradation over time has since ruled out that possibility.
