Can we live forever? (a video about growing organs, from NOVA)

via wimp (who are on a roll today)

Nova has a special on what Aubrey, Vladimir, and Anthony are doing. People already on my list. Big focus on Anthony Atala's work in the video. Adding Doris Taylor, and  Robert Langer, when I have more time.  Nova has never failed to blow my mind. Watched it growing up every week. If i ever was at a tipping point between being a nerd or being a jock, it was when my middle school football coach asked me if I wanted to play, and I said no, because practice was at the same time as Nova. (Of course, if we had a Tivo back then, I might have ended up a nerd in better shape.)
