Artificially Growing Organs
How do you make organ without a body to build it in? Amazingly enough, this is one of the most recently answered questions of science. From growing a Human ear on a rat to functional lungs and hearts in specialized containers.

How do you make organ without a body to build it in? Start with an internal framework to guide growth, followed by some plumbing, then an electrical signal with a mechanical pressure and lastly an oxygen supply. Simple in many ways, but yet still unbelievably complicated. This is an amazing breakthrough in medical science!
