Woo Suk Hwang, the head of a team of South Korean scientists who cloned the first human embryo to use for research, said in an interview with Reuters that stem cell science will advance because of its enormous potential, and will not be halted by political interests.
Is it wrong that I'm totally having a Beavis & Butthead moment in giggling that this guy's name is Woo Suk Hwang, knowing that the H in his last name is silent, or am I just on glue?
