“We took a rat apart and rebuilt it as a jellyfish.”

From Nature.com (via The Atlantic):

Bioengineers have made an artificial jellyfish using silicone and muscle cells from a rat’s heart. The synthetic creature, dubbed a medusoid, looks like a flower with eight petals. When placed in an electric field, it pulses and swims exactly like its living counterpart.

Science is crazy.
