I was just watching a documentary about dinosaurs and this question came to my mind. In Jurassic Park, the whole story is based on the premise that dinosaurs were recreated using the blood found in an amber. Later scientists create the dino DNA and hence create dinosaurs. How realistic or scientifically possible is the story? I mean of course no one has ever found dinosaurs' blood, but let's say even if it was trapped inside a mosquito inside amber, could that ball of amber, still survive millions of years later? Of course they said in the movie that DNA was not complete, but then it comes to the mind that would it have anything at all?
Broadly I have two questions
- How much scientifically possible is the discovery of dinosaur blood, today ?
- How much scientifically possible is it to recreate dinosaurs even if their blood sample is found?
What I mean is, if by chance, such a thing really happened (the story of mosquito biting dino and getting locked in amber) is it possible to create dinosaurs?
