Mouse cloned from drop of blood

Scientists in Japan have cloned a mouse from a single drop of blood.

Circulating blood cells collected from the tail of a donor mouse were used to produce the clone, a team at the Riken BioResource Center reports in the journal Biology of Reproduction.

The female mouse lived a normal lifespan and could give birth to young, say the researchers.

3. 200 years from now...

Dude 1: I'm tired, I wish we had a horse so we could ride

Dude 2: Done.

Dude 2 reaches into his pack and pulls out a little jar. It's labeled "Instant Horse". He takes a pill out, throws it on the ground a poof! a horse appears.

Dude 1: awesome! hey wait, don't you have any Arabians?

Arthur C. Clarke once said, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic."

4. Spaceship leaves earth towards a habitable planet

Minimum crew with blood samples from engineers, scientists, artists, musicians also with their consciousness/memories downloaded.

Arrive at planet, ..... instant population

5. That is a very cool concept.

I see that being possible in the future.

As for right now, I would love to read that as hardcore Sci-Fi.
