Lana Del Rey & The Curious Case Of The Chimera
I don’t know about you, but I get all my science news from Lana Del Rey. And the past 24 hours have been particularly informative. The dark-pop goddess made a rare appearance on Twitter to share a link about the birth of a real-life chimera. To put it simply, scientists have created a human-pig hybrid in a landmark study that raises the possibility of growing human organs in animals. The experiment sounds horrifying, but it’s a potentially life-saving breakthrough for those in need of a transplant.
If you’re fascinated by the cutting edge of science, educate yourself further by watching the trio of videos Lana posted on Instagram (below). Apart from sharing important medical breakthroughs, the Honeymoon diva’s fourth LP seems to be coming together nicely with news that she has registered a new track called “Young & In Love.” The credits are particularly interesting. It represents a reunion with Born To Die collaborator Emile Haynie and right-hand man Rick Nowels with added input from hitmaker Benny Blanco. Is it asking too much for them to record a track called “Chimera”?
