Real-life ‘Jurassic Park’ could probably be built ‘if we wanted to,’ Elon Musk’s Neuralink partner says
Max Hodak says the artificially-created dinosaurs 'wouldn't be genetically authentic'
Elon Musk’s business partner says a real-life version of "Jurassic Park" could "probably" happen but only if the tech whizzes "wanted to."
The co-founder of Musk’s Neuralink company, Max Hodak, hit send on a tweet that suggested that any featured dinosaurs at a metaphorical Jurassic Park "wouldn't be genetically authentic dinosaurs." But, with about "15 years of breeding and engineering" anything is possible "to get super exotic novel species," he added.
However, many of those who responded to Hodak made their skepticism known to the executive.
While such an endeavor sounds like an ambitious impossibility, Tesla and SpaceX executive Musk has reveled in opportunities to otherwise prove his doubters wrong.

In the 1993 fictional "Jurassic Park" film, the popular theme park, which is filled with extinct dinosaurs, is erected after a team of genetic scientists successfully extract dinosaur DNA from prehistoric mosquitoes.
Fans of the film franchise will remember plans of opening the colossal park go up in smoke when the man-eating dinosaurs break and dangerously run amuck before the park sees its grand opening.
Colin Trevorrow, who helmed 2015's "Jurassic World," will direct the next installment following J.A. Bayona's "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom." Those two films grossed $1.67 billion and $1.3 billion, respectively.
