Bob Archibald  asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi Chris and other scientists. I listen to your podcast weekly. Love them.

Has there been any progress in creating a living organism from basic elements (CHONPS) and some heat? Seems like with so many advances in human biology, science should be able to produce a simple organism in the lab.

What do you think?
