I did not know that! So does a starfish have stem cells that reproduce like the ones in our nasal passages in order for it to regrow its missing limb? WAIT WAIT WAIT you mean will a whole new starfish grow from that missing joint or arm?
Like I said, you can't challenge me on time because I am the ''master'' on time and space and if Einstein was here today he would concede to me.
Wow, that is cool. So, if we figure out how the stem cells work in the starfish, we may just be able to do the same with humans, as we have been trying to do for the last 10 years maybe?
One question that does arise from regrowth of simple animals from their parts is whether the regrown animal is of the same age as the original (the current problems we have with cloning regarding our inability to reset the the cellular biological clock, so the clone is born with the cellular age of its parent)?
