Even though it might not make much sense on the surface, scientists and authors of science fiction have always considered the possibility of something extremely advanced, something that is sometimes impossible to implement due to the fact that it simply violates the laws of physics, biology, and any other sciences.
There is also the opposite situation, which describes a circumstance in which something may have a ridiculous or even fantastic appearance. Still, it does not violate any of the universe’s principles from a scientific standpoint. Here are some examples of such non-existent items that may possibly occur in the future.
1. The practice of cloning human beings
It wasn’t until 1996 that researchers successfully cloned the first mammalian animal, a sheep named Dolly. A somatic cell’s nucleus was transplanted into an egg’s cytoplasm to do this, and the sheep named Dolly was a genetic clone of another sheep that had been used as a cell donor. The cloned creature lived for 6.5 years until being killed in 2003 due to disease. The experiment was a success, and as a result, scientists have been able to clone several animals, including cats, dogs, horses, cows, rabbits, monkeys, and others.
Do we have the technology to clone people? The consensus among scientists is that this scenario is plausible. The only trouble is in the ethical component of the matter, or more accurately, in the prejudices held by society. If it weren’t for them, clones would already be roaming the Earth, and there wouldn’t be much difference between them and the originals. If humans could figure out how to transplant brains, then at the very least, they would be able to build a kind of reserve body supply.
2. Travelling faster than the speed of light
The existence of this paradox is brought about by the fact that, from a scientific point of view, it is simultaneously impossible and conceivable to travel at speed greater than that of light. Why shouldn’t they? According to the theory of relativity proposed by Albert Einstein, there is nothing that can travel at a quicker speed than a photon of light. When an object approaches the speed of light, time for that object begins to slow down, and when it reaches its maximum, the clock stops.
How is that even possible? Nobody goes to the bother of activating the “cheat codes” in order to navigate the space by employing a kind of loophole that takes the form of the same wormholes. In a nutshell, it is analogous to a tunnel in that it provides a means to travel from one location to another while avoiding travel across a considerable distance. In this manner, it is theoretically feasible to travel faster than the speed of light and arrive in a different region of the Milky Way in a matter of seconds, rather than spending tens of thousands of years doing so.
3. Toroidal planets
A torus is a hollow circular form that has a central opening, and a doughnut is the simplest illustration of a torus that can be found. In addition, scientists believe that the universe contains heavenly bodies, such as planets, that take the shape of a torus. According to the findings of some scientists, such a form could have been produced as a consequence of a collision between two objects on the planetary size. According to one theory, the Moon may have formed when the Earth collided tangentially with the planet Theia 4.5 billion years ago. In our case, however, it resulted in the development of spherical shapes.
In certain circumstances, the construction of structures in the shape of a doughnut can be caused by a massive collision involving several huge items. However, such formations only last for a brief period, and when the planet cools down and its rotation slows, it assumes a shape that is very similar to a sphere.
There are more unusual types of planets and satellites. This is, for example, Pan, a Saturn satellite that resembles a dumpling.
4. Jurassic Park
In 1993, when the movie “Jurassic Park” was first brought to the public’s attention, it had an implementation that looked incredible. However, it appears that it may be possible for humanity to bring back dinosaurs or at least some of them.
And it’s not so much about some mosquitoes that got caught in amber since the DNA chains were damaged millions of years ago, the same way that they are in the descendants of dinosaurs. By way of illustration, scientists have already conducted experiments with chickens, which, in case you were unaware, are among the living descendants of dinosaurs. Using genome editing, the researchers produced embryos with beaks similar to those of dinosaurs and other extinct reptiles.
It is possible that in the not too distant future, scientists will be able to build something similar to Jurassic Park by modifying the DNA of existing animals, including chains of dinosaur genes.
5. The cure for old age
Alchemists and later real scientists have spent a significant amount of time and effort trying to find a cure for ageing, even though they have no idea why this process occurs in the first place. Now, scientists have discovered that DNA is involved in this process, or more specifically, their gradual thinning with each cycle of cell division and a kind of planned ageing embedded in the same cells. This discovery was made possible by the discovery that DNA is involved in this process.
Yet, little can be done about it, but, from a scientific perspective, “tweaking” a few DNA settings to prevent ageing-related wrinkles after the age of 30 would not be considered particularly extraordinary. The most important thing is to discover the most effective method for editing specific genes; if this is accomplished, humans will be able to stay eternally youthful.
