... ... middle of paper ... ... but there can still be the possibility of contamination. Although we can only do so much with DNA and protein fragments, they are still discoveries, which are going against previous intuitions. Again, no cloning of dinosaurs are going to take place any time soon, but DNA may help to link dinosaurs with other species around today. These two articles, the research article and the review article show strong evidence that preserved proteins, including DNA can survive under the perfect circumstances. Of course more research will need to be done, and hopefully more findings will conclude the same results.
Cosmic Justice The particular Evil which the space turtle sensed came from one Dr. Quincey P. Mandra, who after a long life of being victimized (at least as he saw it) through one means or another, decided that the time had arrived for him to become a Mad Scientist and wreak his revenge on humanity and creation in general by taking over the world and making it his plaything. (As can be seen, Dr. Mandra was rather narrow of vision, as any self-respecting Mad Scientist these days would have planned to take over the universe, or at least our particular galaxy. Perhaps this was why the elder space turtle seemed unconcerned.) He had already constructed his Evil Headquarters, which he had named The Citadel of Doom (Insert lightning and thunder here). He thought that it was a name that rolled rather nicely off the tongue.
Jurassic World, a film about a theme park experiment gone wrong, brings dinosaurs back bigger and better than before. It was released in June of 2015, directed by Colin Trevorrow, the movie made 1.67 billion dollars in box office sales. The movie is an action packed science fiction/thriller that keeps the audience glued to the screen. Jurassic World is an iconic movie that brings back the theme from the original movie which shows the human power struggle against nature. The movie makes very many parallels to the original films, and the film makes use of modern day technology to present certain issue throughout the film.
In Michael Crichton’s novel Jurassic Park the amount of technological advances is outstanding, but they are not better for the society. Bringing the dinosaurs back from extinction may have been a ground-breaking advance for science, except the engineers of the park were unaware of how to handle these animals that had lived millions of years ago, when the world had a drastically different environment. (quote). This means that the new technology is not always better; the people of the society are often not ready to deal with drastic changes in relatively short periods of time. Firstly, this can be related to multiple wars, as with every war there is new technology and much of it is not better, at least not in the beginning.
However, it is impossible for scientists today to find hardened amber with dinosaur DNA in it, simply because DNA does not last; it degrades over time (even in preserved amber). Just the tiniest bit of degradation would ruin its value (UCMP 1995). Therefore, you would not have the starting point for proceeding with such an endeavor as the scientists inaccurately accomplish in Spielberg's film: the breeding of dinosaurs. Continuing on with the amber, the film claims that it was discovered in a Dominican mine. Dominican amber mines are scientifically aged at the Miocene and Oligocene epochs (French 1998).
Privatizing the Space Industry "The dinosaurs became extinct because they didn't have a space program. And if we become extinct because we don't have a space program, it'll serve us right!, said Larry Niven” (Engdahl). Progress made over the many years at NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) has `been impeded because of cuts in funding and the government not seeing any potential with the space program. The current space program needs to be taken from government control to a privately built and funded space industry, so mankind does not turn out like the dinosaurs. With the great reduction n the government money backing the space industry the United States must change to having private companies create jobs, create financing and create a new space industry.
Carvings and drawings have been found that support the idea of humans and dinosaurs living at the same time. The idea of dinosaur extinction is always up for debate. There is good evidence for both theories but they are still unclear as to what really happened to the dinosaurs. (Ron Hutchinson et al., August 20, 2013) References "What Killed the Dinosaurs?." PBS.
The electric fences stopped working, and the dinosaurs escaped. Ian Malcolm's opinion of this world is that it won't survive, or the humans won't survive. The world has survived everything until now, it will surely survive the dinosaurs once more. But us, the humans are the ones that may not survive. "Our planet is four and a half billion years old.
Hammond would have succeeded in the planning of his park if he and his team hadn’t been so overwhelmed with greed and power. Since he would be the first to open a park of this type, he would be able to charge what ever he wanted. Was he just out for the money or did he just want people to learn about his discoveries of being able to clone prehistoric dinosaurs? One of errors that caused the park to fail was the fact that Hammond and the other designers of the park didn't think about the unpredictability of nature itself. Jurassic Park was to be like some sort of resort or theme park.
