We all know "Jurassic Park" wasn't real, but remember sitting there when the scientist explained how he pulled dinosaur DNA from a mosquito fossilized in amber, and thinking, "That sounds like it COULD happen."
It can't. Scientists just definitively proved it.
A team at the University of Otago in New Zealand has found that DNA just doesn't last very long. Most DNA has a half-life of 521 years. Even if it's perfectly preserved, it's still unreadable after 1.5 million years. And no amount of technological advancement can change that.
The last dinosaurs died 65 million years ago. So they're not getting cloned, at least not from their preserved DNA.
(--But you can still enjoy some cool human-dinosaur prototype designs from the aborted "Jurassic Park 4" movie...)
The script at the time featured someone getting funky with the dinosaur DNA and creating HUMAN-DINOSAUR HYBRIDS. The filmmakers were serious enough about the concept to work up some sketches of the monsters. And someone even did a sculpture of one of them.
