"This result does not mean that cloned babies will be born anytime soon, however. The resulting embryo was missing some types of cells and would not have been able to implant in the womb. The difficulty of getting embryos to grow in the womb is, in fact, why partly scientists still haven't been able to clone monkeys."
Ever since Dolly the sheep was cloned eighteen years ago, scientists have been trying and failing to use that same technique to create cloned human embryos from adult cells. Now, they've finally succeeded, in what could a major step toward personalized organ transplants and other therapies that rely on a pool of stem cells.

The answer as to why delay a decision can be found in one sentence:
"The review could push the decision about the controversial pipeline until after midterm elections in November."

The review could push the decision about the controversial pipeline until after midterm elections in November.

Most of us have had Facebook accounts for the past few years, if not a decade. But time and bloat have turned once-beloved font of nostalgia into an onslaught of faux-sentimental sludge from strangers. So as Facebook stands poised to break itself into a bunch of different apps, we say to you: Screw it. It's time to start fresh.

It's great to be rich. It's extra double great to be super rich. And not just because you have all that extra money--because being super rich actually lets you pay lower taxes.

"The Open Source Seed Initiative has been designed to make a new range of seeds—including broccoli, celery, kale, quinoa and other vegetables and grains—free for all of of us to grow, breed and share for perpetuity. In other words, the geeks of gardening are democratizing vegetable growing, protecting plants from patents and other restrictions in the coming decades."
Gardening and technology couldn't, perhaps, seem more different, but don't you believe it: a new initiative out of the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus will soon see your veg patch become an open source project.

For nearly a hundred years, people have built hospital ships, the size of a city block, on the ocean. And these floating infirmaries have saved countless lives and helped heal travelers on the ocean.
