“Zombie” mammalian cells that may function better after they die have been created by researchers at Sandia National Laboratories and the University of New Mexico (UNM).

The simple technique coats a cell with a silica solution to form a near-perfect replica of its structure. The process may simplify a wide variety of commercial fabrication processes from the nano- to macroscale. It’s also allowing scientists to preserve cells down to the minor grooves of its DNA.

The work uses the cells as templates, or molds, on which to deposit silica. From the living cell, this process creates hardened silica structures that look the same as the previously living cell, but can survive greater pressures and temperatures than flesh ever could, and can perform some functions better than when they were alive.

They need to send this over to to the UK so any outbreaks can be contained biggrin

Actually, I see this as a way to create androids for harsh conditions.  Think "Old Man's War".

Which one of these many points in time will we look back and say, 'Yeah, we probably shouldn't have done that'?

Oh hell no.  Let me guess, the next step in the research is to determine how to initiate the change through viral delivery?

Do you suppose that they've tried this on brain cells yet?   Would this make you into a genius or a cold emotionally distant thinker like Mr Manhattan?

I for once welcome our new upper class citizens, those rich enough to become super humans.
