Science Channel Announces the Debut of Exclusive Look Into Dr. J. Craig Venter's Creation of Synthetic Life
Date:5/20/2010

WASHINGTON, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, world-renowned scientist Dr. J. Craig Venter announced that he and his team at the J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) became the first in history to synthetically create a living, self-replicating cell.  The news holds groundbreaking potential for solutions to a host of global challenges, including generating new food sources, pharmaceuticals and vaccines; cleaning up pollution; creating new energy sources; producing clean water; and more.  

Now, Science Channel is exclusively bringing viewers inside Dr. Venter's pioneering quest to produce life synthetically in CREATING SYNTHETIC LIFE, premiering Thursday, June 3, 2010, at 8 PM (ET/PT).  Over the course of five years, only Science Channel cameras captured the failures, successes and breakthrough moments of Dr. Venter, Nobel Laureate Hamilton Smith, Dr. Clyde Hutchison and JCVI researchers as they meticulously sought to create a synthetic single-celled organism.

What exactly does today's news mean for the human race?  Where exactly will it take us?  Could the technology be used for negative purposes?  What are the ethical concerns we must weigh before using it?  Following the premiere of CREATING SYNTHETIC LIFE, Science Channel delves deeper into the ethical and scientific implications of this discovery in CREATING SYNTHETIC LIFE: YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED, premiering Thursday, June 3, 2010, at 9 PM (ET).  This one-hour special is an open forum discussion featuring Dr. Venter, leading bioethicists, top scientists and other members of the scientific community discussing the breakthrough
