curiosity in world. Many are amazed with this fact of twining. The fact that contrasts offspring’s being alike to their ancestor is a genetic carrier called DNA. DNA is a double helical structure that is composed of genetic material called chromosomes. Chromosomes found in human body cells are equal in number in each cell and are formed after the cell division and condensation of DNA (charlotte 3). With growing technology and scientific progress artificial twining called cloning is also made possible.
Hubble Space Telescope. The Hubble Space Telescope captured astronomical pictures that surprised all scientists. Everything seen by the telescope can be seen with the human eye, and in seeing all the colors, dust, gas, stars, etc. one cannot not be amazed. One of the most important things though, was the Hubble Deep Field. The telescope focused on one point looking into space which to the human eye looked as if there was nothing there. To the astonishment of the scientists there was much, much more
provided for them. Now, people just get what they want in their Randifts. Randifts are little gifts that house leaders leave all around the house at the most random times so that the inhabitants are happy. Recently Bain got a piece of chocolate and was amazed because chocolate is so hard to get these days. The only thing that Bain likes about today's world of bubbles is, that they have no government. Bain remembers learning that in the 2000 and 3000 there was so hard government which led to only some people
early in my childhood and has grown substantially to that which energizes me to chase after higher goals. I used to obsessively search for information on wild plants that were edible and had medicinal properties. Now, I find that I am continually amazed by research on the photosynthetic pathway along with biochemistry within plants in general. I was, and still am, enthralled by the idea that so much knowledge and novelty is within the organisms that I had appreciated since I was young. I believe
and gene mapping. They’ve allowed for advances in cancer treatment, AIDS research, cloning, stem-cell studies and so much more. They traveled to the moon to test the effects of zero gravity, and scientists had sold and purchased them by the millions.” (Ravitz). How does it feel knowing that these came from your cells, and that you brought all of these amazing things into the world? H: I feel quite shocked and amazed. It’s hard to imagine that these cancer cells would have the potential to do so much
We like to believe that science is a very precise field. We record every bit of data we can find so as to validate our results and obtain the most accurate information. However, if science is supposed to be a field where facts and statistics are safeguarded for future review, how is it that the story behind the origin of the famous HeLa cells went untold for so long? In The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Rebecca Skloot aims to shine a light on the events that lead to the discovery of the HeLa
truly began modern research of the cell. “…Her cells went up in the first space missions to see what would happen to human cells in zero gravity, they helped with some of the most important advances in medicine: the polio vaccine, chemotherapy, cloning, gene mapping, in vitro fertilization.” (Skloot, 2) The only reason any of these discoveries occurred was because of the success of Dr. George Gey in 1951. His success in culturing the first immortal human cells led to multiple advances in the medical
