This article is about scientist that have figured out that they can grow sperm from skin cells. A university figured out that maybe human embryonic stem cells and human induced pluripotent stem cells can become sperm cells. This article is so interesting. I can't believe that this could actually happen. The negative thing about this is that If this is possible, imagine how much more the population is going to increase. I can't wait to see what else we're going to figure out.
