Well, whoever is in control of synthesized life is probably going to be smarter than to secede to the governments will and go and create biological warfare. At least thats what methinks



until they wave around their pocket change... 500 million is just a drop of the military's discretionary funding and that amount of cash could definitely change a few minds.

Whats wrong with that man.




We're always bitching about how we're affecting the environment and destroying the planet by our senseless logging/drilling/mining, and now we're going to move to creating life forms to place here?

All I sense is bad, bad vibes.




Did you watch the video? The life forms we are creating are very very very simple life forms which have coding in the DNA which allows us to know whether or not it was synthesized. Part of the reasoning for creating this synthetic life is so we won't have to log/mine/drill. He also explains how they are working on ways to control the new bacteria when it gets out of a controlled setting. Like setting its DNA up to only be able to withstand certain conditions. It is not as bad as you think.




Okay. Assuming this man in the video I didn't watch is completely honest, do you expect this technology to have completely peaceful purposes in the future? Do you really want to dream up what the defense budgets could do with shit like this?

Our need for electricity has caused us to not only destroy a planet but now to create life forms for the sole purpose of supplying us with it, and this is the BEST thing we could do.

How is this not fucking sick?

i wish they could create a bacteria that sucks in carbon monoxide and separates it.
we could possibly back fire pollution and stimulate plant growth at the same time.

Hah! Very cool stuff. I think awesome we have the ability artificially sequence an entire lifeform.  Though the last paragraph concerns me. I wonder what sort of patent protections gene's are going get? The ability to patent a particular sequence or just a particular method of sequencing?

I imagine it'll be regulated somewhat similarly to software. Genetic DRM anyone? Lolz.

Craig Venter, the pioneering US geneticist behind the experiment, said the achievement heralds the dawn of a new era in which new life is made to benefit humanity, starting with bacteria that churn out biofuels, soak up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and even manufacture vaccines.


Wouldn't this mean they could make planets like mars suitable for life?

They used a living cell to make it though...it's not like creating life from scratch. That's still amazing, but I'll be more amazed when they make an environment of amino acids that spontaneously starts to self replicate.




They did it already... in 1952. :laugh: Well, at least to the furthest extent possible.

carbon dioxide is what plants use to convert to oxygen.
why the hell would we need a bacteria that does that?

if we could improve bacteria that makes bio fuels tho, that would make us less dependent than our non renewable counterpart.

I think point was they can create them to convert what ever gases they want :confused: Meaning they can great oxygen for humans in places it doesn't exist now. At least I hope because when the biblical Zombies happen I don't wanna be here.

that wouldn't work in outer space, many planets have unsustainable temperatures and/or unmanageable atmospheres that cannot be recreated like earths.

we would need a close range of 78.09% nitrogen,20.95% oxygen,0.93% argon,0.038% carbon dioxide, 1% water vapor, a balanced altitude and so much more.

oxygen isn't the only thing we need, duh.
