Wordless Wednesday #2

Paul W. K. Rothemund manipulated molecules of DNA to create smiley faces that are one one-thousandth the width of a human hair.

Now is that some happy DNA ?or am I blowing things out of proportion?

napaboaniya said...

Wow!! That's interesting and something not everyone will think off. Happy faces in DNA, I think I need some of that in my system.

Ok, now that is just plain out and out awesome!

I wonder if whatever would come from that DNA would be naturlaly incined to be happy.

Heck, I suddenly get the imagry of an overly joyful gregarious person bouncing along and someone asks "why are you always so happy?" to which the reply is "I can't help it! It's in my genes! Serously, I have Happy Genes!"

Where ever scientists go, artists will soon follow! Although the dreamers are often there ahead of the crowd.

Bond said...

That is something else....BUT why would someone even THINK about doing that?

Sandy Carlson said...

The happiness DNA! I like it. You do find the best stuff, I'm with Sandee on that one!
