Are we going to have lab grown lungs?

I hope this works.
On Wednesday, researchers from University of Texas Medical Branch published a new paper in the journal Science Translational Medicine. In it, they detail their latest milestone along the path to creating lab-grown lungs for humans: they can now successfully transplant these bioengineered lungs into pigs.

I hope it does too.
Even if this first attempt has some problems, they'll work them out and we'll see organs made from patients' own cells transplanted on a routine basis.
That will mean no more rejection, and far fewer complications and failures.
We'll be able to swap out organs like we change oil filters in cars.
It'll save a lot of lives.

I just checked the weather report in your area. It looks like you're going to get rain for about a week.

That stinks.
I didn't get a good look at Mars either. The atmosphere was hazy enough to cause a lot of flickering. There was one very bright "star", but it was definitely whites in color. There were very few other stars visible.

Yes we had rain every day. Clouds every night and I can not see Mars. BOO.
