    Israeli scientists unveil world’s first 3D-printed heart with human tissue

    Scientists in Israel unveiled a 3D print of a heart with human tissue and vessels on Monday, calling it a first and a “major medical breakthrough” that advances possibilities for transplants.

    While it remains a far way off, scientists hope one day to be able to produce hearts suitable for transplant into humans as well as patches to regenerate defective hearts.

    Can they print a vascular organ about 12" long and 1.5" in diameter? I'm asking for a friend.

      Yes.
      They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.
