wow! Thanks for all the kind remarks.
Yes, I know this is
However, I still support my original point that this is NOT the headline-grabbing Artificial Womb.
It IS a means of providing extended womb-like support for really early premature births, and should be lauded as a serious accomplishment in it's own merits, as it provides a MUCH better option than a premature birth installed in an oxygenated tank for 'hopeful' completion of the embryo's development.
There is no reason to over-sell it's accomplishments, since the fundamental issue of providing life-support for these premature embryos is a major accomplishment in itself.
Yes, it could very well lead to the actual development of a REAL artificial womb, capable of supporting full embryonic growth from sperm-egg inception to a live birth, but that is another issue altogether - requiring the development of the umbilical link, the development of the nutrient support, the development of the hormone additives (to determine the sex of the embryo), and the development of the 'unknown' issues involved in the early stages of gestation.
Thanks to all the supporters and readers of this forum for your input.
