Jurassic Park, was a terrific movie being the world's highest-grossing film at the time of its release. It was filled with sci-fi adventures which tickled our imagination and opened our minds into bold possibilities that were to start with “what if’s”. The said movie was made not only to entertain and to fascinate the viewers but also to educate everyone about the extent of the powers and wonders of science. The main idea or basis of the said film is that scientists were able to revive dinosaurs by obtaining their DNA out of the gut of ancient mosquitoes preserved in amber. The fragments of dinosaur DNA are augmented using PCR (polymerase chain reaction), the gaps are filled in with frog DNA, and the repaired genome is then injected into an ostrich egg and brought to term in an artificial womb. The 1993 film Jurassic Park gave rise to various questions regarding science aspects, biosafety issues and ethical issues with which this paper was to outline.
We can never deny that humans were made with a characteristic of superb intelligence and perseverance to continue learning, discovering and improving science especially the technology without considering any limit. Everything, even the most unfeasible imagination of a person, can be made into reality; not these days maybe but perhaps sometime in the future with the most advanced knowledge, most equipped instruments and most especially with the prepared minds.
Relating to the given film, humans or scientists specifically, were eager to experience a world with the dinosaurs of the past. With this great desire, they faced all the odds and their fears to find a way that will make this possible. They involved biotechnology by obtaining dinosaurs’ DNA from preserved ancient mosquitos. In reality, there is a considerable chance that reviving dinosaurs could indeed be possible, though it would necessarily involve...
