Donald Platt

Donald Platt is interested in using genetic engineering and synthetic biology technology to miniaturize organisms, perhaps including, one day, humans. One of the main interests in doing this is space colonization. Space exploration has huge mass and volume constraints and yet we will need livestock and animals so we should look at making them smaller. Also smaller humans would find space exploration easier and could possibly even colonize asteroids such as Ceres.
