That’s not all. There’s also a plan to manipulate the DNA of elephants to give woolly mammoths new life. There’s a crowd-funding project to create safe, nuclear fusion technology. And then there’s the fact that finding alien life is only 20 years away.
“At least a half-dozen other worlds (besides Earth) that might have life are in our solar system. The chances of finding it, I think, are good, and if that happens, it’ll happen in the next 20 years, depending on the financing,” Seth Shostak of SETI.
