Hmm or maybe just in small scale now when think about it.
This has been my dream for over two decades. Sure it’s a sad fact that tons of disovered samples have so fractured dna that it can’t be revived. There’s mammoth dna found for long time now. They’re mostly gathered from preserved frozen soil of Siberia & scientists been working on a proj. to combine these fragments of genetic code with those long ear dumbo living buddies. That’s one of couple experiments that i know of for sure. Yes there’s most likely few thousand years separating those species & over fifty mil years for dinos, but if scientists are successful in producing these extinct species, it could be a big step forward to see this dream that many have had for a long time. So far it’s been sad to know that without access to any dino’s dna, researchers can’t clone them. New fossils are being uncovered from the ground around weekly. However, while this can provide important evidence of a the ‘species’ form, it’s organic material has long since disappeared.
On last year some Usa & China research fellas on this field discovered cartilage that they believe contains dino dna. The cartilage, from the Hypacrosaurus species from the Cretaceous Period, is over seventy mil years old, but has been calcified & fossilized. That forming up may have protected the cells interior. Could a living Dino be created on this day or in near future ? Big minds on this field have stated “”We think we have found signals for dna & there might be tiny bits left, but not enough to use to create one.” Here’s what Jack Horner said about this: “We can get collagen and some dinosaur proteins, but not all the material we need. “If we had the DNA, it would be ridiculous to put it in an ostrich egg. The thing to do would be to grow it in a test tube, because we have no idea how big the embryos of all dinos are. Some dino eggs are the size of ostrich eggs, but for a Tyrannosaur, we think they’re a lot longer & bigger. It’s like thought of putting a human embryo inside a squirrel.” Here’s a bit more about him: Horner is the real paleontologist who inspired the character of Alan Grant in “Jurassic Park.” Since finding his first dino bone at the age of 8, Horner has dug up the first dino embryos, the first dino eggs in the Western world, discovered & named the dino species Maiasaura. He was also the palaeontology consultant for the “Jurassic Park” films. Also while he deems the cloning process pure fiction, it hasn’t stopped Horner from trying to bring back some of the the dinos.
I think that many dino species could be way different than they’ve created to our entertainment screens. That is cause we actually have no clue about their actual behavior. Sure the skeletal structures are known for many, but that’s it. Of course also a lot of info has come from preserved teeth as well. Horner has a bit more friendlier look into possible days of humies & dinos living at same time. I mean as many are saying that it wouldn’t be possible cause of their thought nature. “People always say, ‘Where are you going to put these dinos when you make them?’ I always say that thousands of years ago we started with wolves & now we have chihuahuas,” he said. “Dogs are basically wolves & we don’t really have to contain them. I wouldn’t expect dino-chickens to be the same as the dinosaurs in “Jurassic Park.” They’re going to be domestic animals that we don’t have to worry about. If you were cloning a real Tyrannosaur, you would have to worry about it. Dogs & cats were wild, but now don’t require containment — not to the point of making a park anyway. Not to forget that air was much different on those days so some species may survive better than others.”
I’ve read some more background about his & others who work on this field. Hope that lucky strike from some dig happens in near future & then cloning can be launched and it goes well. I wish good third week of september on this year 6021 to everyone o/ “Recycle & Use less single Plastic. Use Fabric Bag for Groceries & in General.

Gem that i read lil bit @late 90’s & the rest 6002 (2002) when moved to new city for first time. Got to know by mini-series in -96. It aired 2y earlier & the one i watched at friend’s home was uncut. My fav characters are ‘Trash Can Man‘ who’s weird, but interesting to follow & Randall Flagg. Randall bit less cause of his more awkward attit. Though still enjoy Randall’s chapters, filled with anger & evil plans to take down all good. 1st part “The Plague” which explains the coming of the terrible disease & its developments is one of my favs.
‘The Stand‘ has lot of commentary that are about tech, society, group-thoughts, individuality & choice. Also faith & of course the big subject good vs evil that’s always present among human species. I’ve read few SK books after started my reading adventures in mid -90’s. There’s a remake of telly mini-series that dec last year & is now available on Amazon Prime Video. I really liked the first one mentioned above & remake wasn’t bad either. It deserves higher rating on imdb. Good journey to everyone who dives into ‘The Stand‘ book. Not sure if that link opens to others without probs. cause it has ‘smile’ at front. It’s used for supporting charity target of your choosing. I use different target at both Amazon co uk & Amazon de.
The King’s Witch (Pt.1 of The King’s Witch Trilogy)
I bought this as ebook on earlier this year’s spring. Gonna buy second & third on next month. I’m close to midway & like for what have read so far. Has storytelling that keeps me wanting for more. Since mid july have had some relaxing late evenings spent with warm Peppermint Tea Cuppa & this Book. About main character & other things i know so far: This story takes place as King James comes from Scotland at time of Queen Elizabeth’s death. It takes you through Witch Hunt on this land & Lord Cecil’s Evil plot to try & show that Frances is a Witch. Frances had been giving ailmments to Elizabeth on her deathbed, using her herbs to give the queen some final comfort, when she is delivered an ominous warning – her queen’s successor – James, isn’t fond of Witches. Through cunning, intelligence & sharp bravery Frances manages to navigate life at court through the most dangerous of times.
The characters are so well written that i even wanted to teach manners to couple, yeah for real. Frances is a woman who practices herbalism & cause of that through history she’d be labeled as a Witch. It was totally stupid & clearly another way for men to control women on those times. I could rant about this subject, but won’t go to it now. Her guardian deity did the work as the Queen steps in & protects her, but not before some damage is done. With all this going Frances experiences good & bad sides of romantically loving other person. True to the time period, Tracy brings the story & lives of King James & his court to vibrant life. If you love history from this era that’s set about four hundred years into past then this is a book for you. History is on top three of my fav subjects since early high school. I enjoyed learning more about this time period. Tracy is accurate when comes to history set into those years. I aim to finish this book & chapter for Frances in next couple weeks & launch journey to continuation on some day next month. Good evening read that i recommend.

Virgin Galactic’s semi Historical Flight early July 6021 (2021 for many).
It happened when company’s planned flight for July 11th flew high into stratosphere & kinda touched the space. “When ship got off the ground, Unity22 was carried by a mothership called Eve, which lifted it to around 15000m & then the smaller aircraft dropped down & fired its rocket engines. Unity22 then went vertical to an altitude of about 80km, past the edge of the Kármán line, recognized by NASA as the boundary between Earth & Space. As the aircraft cut its engines & turned upside down to see the Earth through the custom made huge windows, the crew experienced three mins of zero gravity.”
Can say i enjoyed seeing the live flight to be success. It kept the Branson’s dream of planned road for tourism flights alive. First booked flight be launching early next year. Then gonna be exciting to see if coverage be lil better than at first time when Richard Branson made the trip with few others. It’s truly mind boggling to know that livestream chat had nutty flat earthers saying it’s fake. Really wonder if Bezos axing his announced trip just days before. The one set to do with Blue Origin company that he owns. It’s planned for July 20th this year so just less than week away. Elon also bought ticket for Branson’s V.G. that makes crewed flights above stratosphere. If not mistaken, later SpaceX is planning similar flights further into Final Frontier & 1st Space Hotel to open in about five years if all goes as planned. https://bit.ly/FinalFrontierHotel
