Elon Musk's Partner Says He Could Build The Real 'Jurassic Park' With Genetically Modified Dinosaurs

Thursday, April 8, 2021 | Entrepreneur


Max Hodak, president and co-founder with Elon Musk of Neuralink, tweeted that enough technology already exists to build your own Jurassic Park with genetically engineered creatures.

According to The Hill , Hodak believes that about 15 years of "breeding and engineering" would be enough to create "super exotic species."

When network users responded to his initial message, Hodak remarked that biodiversity is valuable. "But why do we stop there? Why don't we try more intentionally to create new diversity ?"

In the Jurassic Park movies, scientists design genetically modified dinosaurs for a theme park that get out of control.

Founded in 2017, Neuralink is a neurotechnology company specialized in the development of brain-computer interfaces to combat diseases such as Alzheimer's, dementia, paralysis and spinal cord injuries, among others.

7 Food Stocks That Are Leading Through Innovation

It might be easy to dismiss food stocks with so many restaurants still struggling to recover from the global pandemic.

Another trend to look at is the ability of companies to deliver food to consumers.
