Anybody got a link to non-Daily Fail coverage?

About time. Starfish and other animals have been doing that shiat for millions of years.

Have not the scientists of intelligent design been working on that miracle for hundreds of years?
And it still has not happened once.....

Difficulty: we've only really understood what DNA looked like for a little over 70 years, and have only sequenced genomes for entire organisms for a couple of decades. It's the basically the same reason we haven't cured cancer: genetic level biology is freaking complicated. It makes rocket science look trivial in comparison.

But how many precious stem cells were lost in their vile defiance of gods will?

We can talk about doing this, yet we can't think about getting to the planet right next to us?

To be fair, once they had an entire Jesus that grew back.

What's so great about Venus?

No, they cannot have either of my hands, one is needed to hold my beer and the other is needed for far more important functions.

Just don't involve lizards.

My bad, I totally misunderstood what you meant by the scientists of intelligent design. Nevermind.

There may be a few side effects.

What's so great about climbing Mt. Everest? Or running an Ironman race? Or writing a novel?

All of those things are usually done on a planet where lead isn't molten on the surface.

Sounds like a challenge. A lander from the Russians lasted long enough to send back a picture. I bet we could get a rover or aircraft of some form to work now.

Scienticians can almost do what a starfish or a worm can do.

More on this story as it emerges, takes shape and finally picks up a glass and rattles it on the table for a refill....

Came for a picture of chameleon handed guy from that episode of the x-files(young at heart, season 1), but fark, I am disappoint.

No way in hell. Technology has advanced, physics hasn't changed, though. 700 degrees, oceanic pressures, and sulfuric acid clouds.

Plus, blob tectonics. What would there be to look at from the surface?

What we need is a balloon probe with a really high power camera.

I like the idea of using balloons to stay in the open atmosphere of Venus.

Perhaps if you ask her nicely, she'll send a little girl for you to thrill.

Retained memory in regrown heads? How exactly does that work?

You get the idea. Pity others don't.

\SCIENCE!

I think we can, it's just about finances, and necessity. If we HAD to get a new probe to Venus, or put a person on Mars within 5/10 years or we'd be punished by intergalactic spacelords I think we could do something very quickly. Point is we don't need to. Sure we'd all like to, except those in charge of the purse strings.
