"The Science of Today is The Technology of Tomorrow."
--Edward Teller.

Henrietta Lacks, born 08/01/1920 in Southern Virginia, died of cervical cancer at the age of 31. She was a poor Tobacco farmer and mother of five. The silver lining behind the tragic life of Henrietta Lacks was the discovery of arguably the greatest scientific breakthrough in medical history, the first immortal cell line. We will discuss the implications of such a discovery shortly. But first, let’s delve into the humbling story of Henrietta Lacks and the legacy she left behind.

In 1951, Lacks went to Johns Hopkins hospital, the only hospital that treated African-Americans at the time, where she was treated for an aggressive form of cervical cancer. Although there were no protocols in place at the time, her doctor, Dr. Gey, took a tissue sample of her tumor without her informed consent and used it for his own personal research.

Resurrection Biology is the science of resurrecting extinct species. Perhaps a new era in sciences, one that gives humans the power to bring back what we thought was lost forever. Perhaps a gift, a second chance, an oppurtunity to right our wrongs.

The star KIC 8462852 is slightly brighter than our star and resides at a distance of about 1400 light years from our home. KIC 8462852 expresses surprising behavior that’s odd even by the generous standards of cosmic phenomena, it’s debatably the most puzzling star observed in the entire universe.

Discovering DNA’s structure was arguably one of the greatest accomplishments in human history. The credit for such an achievement was largely attributed to the two individuals seen below: Francis Crick and James Watson, respectively. However, there is another, more tragic element to this story that goes greatly unnoticed and that’s the story Rosalind Franklin.

There are too many potential natural/man made catastrophes that put the existence of the human specie at risk of extinction. In fact, our fate on earth is inevitable. For this reason, it’s imperative that humans spread out and seek refuge amongst the stars.

Where should such a pursuit begin? And what potential habitable candidates are currently at our disposal?
