Scientists crush your dream of cloning a dinosaur
The team predicts that even in a bone at an ideal preservation temperature of −5 ºC, effectively every bond would be destroyed after a maximum of 6.8 million years. The DNA would cease to be readable much earlier — perhaps after roughly 1.5 million years, when the remaining strands would be too short to give meaningful information.
I am indeed crushed. #sad
We're going to just have to invent time machines.
Are there any storage devices that can last longer than 1.5 million years?
Well, how about genetical reverse engineering?...
Why can't we collect everything we know about dinosaurs and build a DNA based on this?
Isn't building a species from DNA still beyond our current capabilities?
I think it's coming.
