In 1973, the British interplanetary society is the first and oldest organization, the purpose of which was announced exclusively space research, development and support of space exploration, has launched an ambitious five-year project on search and development of the most promising design of unmanned spacecraft designed for interstellar travel. First among the proposed solutions was "Daedalus". This plan was even more ambitious and set a key goal to seek opportunities for manned journeys to different stars, with the aim of using technologies of the near future.
The DNA sequencing technology is helping scientists find answers to the questions that tormented people for centuries. Charting the genomes of animals, we get a better idea of how the giraffe acquired its long neck and why snakes are so long. Genome sequencing allows us to compare and contrast the DNA of different animals and figuring out how they evolved and to be who they are.
