2.5 microns?  How do they keep them from being inhaled?

Anyone else here picturing a microscopic drone lifting a sperm out of a puddle of cum?

Most of the time I am not unhappy about being old. The world seems so much angrier these days. But when I read an article like this, I regret not having enough time to see what wonders they come up with.

Microdrones with light-driven nanomotors....and I lost it.

"The coolest STEM headline you will read all day" is not even close to the coolest STEM headline I'll read all day"

Try to stick around for another two decades. You may find your life extended by 50%, or more.

It sounds great, but all those extra years come at the end.

This has to be a madlibs generated headline.

I'm not sure adding them to the beginning would be better.  An extra 30 years of childhood sounds kind of rough for everyone involved.

I'd imagine it would be like when Riker was in the puddle of liquid evil and floated to the surface. But white.

Nary a truer word has been spoken. Now if I could have the years say 19 to 29 back again, you got a deal.

As someone who has spent their life in science...  There will be success in animal models.  Then when we transition to human trials a few people will die and there will be a bunch of cancer.  Followed by a bunch of arguing and a decade or two of refinement for marginal results

Every recent medical tech article I read...
