Sometimes when I read science news, it seems as though the world is moving incredibly quickly. I see stories about gene editing, stem cells and cloning…and I think, “What a time to be alive!” But usually just a bit later, I read more science news, and it seems like the world is moving incredibly slowly. We still suffer from genetic diseases, like cystic fibrosis; stem cells haven’t cured Parkinson’s yet; and nobody has cloned me yet to enable me to keep up with all my email.
