10 Outrageous Science Experiments Happening Right Now

Programming To Control Living Cells

A team at MIT have been working on a study that is trying to develop a way to control DNA and living cells, with the ultimate goal of allowing people to actually program organisms. The hope is that by creating specific programming languages for different types of cells will allow them to cure diseases and prevent certain conditions from developing.

Space Travelling Robots

Another study that NASA is currently working on is the Robonaut experiment. This is essentially an investigation into creating a robot that would be capable of travelling into space and acting as a fully functioning crewmember on flights. This would allow the machine to carry out more difficult and dangerous missions, keeping human astronauts much safer.
