Quotes

"Short term exploration doesn’t require knowing any of this," Almeida said. "For long term exploration, are species that are going to come along with humans into long-term space travel, are they going to be able to reproduce normally? The science needs to be collected."
"They're holding this country back," Foust said. "They're refusing to let us move ahead and take advantage of the great nation that we are."
"The other possibility though is that certain vertebrates evolved that ability whereas others didn't. And so it's possible that mammals can't regenerate neurons because they just don't have that mechanism. I happen to believe it's probably more of the former, that some of those abilities are there and they're latent and we have to discover how to reactivate them."
She said: "We believe that adding this biomarker to the process will increase those rates to 50 or 60 percent. It’s very easy to do it only takes a couple of hours, and although we haven’t worked out a price yet it will be very cheap, just a few pounds."
