I agree. It is very interesting.

I should note that one of the points made by this media report, i.e. that there isn't a "magic spark" needed to start life, is solid and once again demonstrated by these scientists. I think for scientists, however, this question was answered a while ago.

It is also cool to see an organism with an entirely synthetic genome as opposed to one with an artificially modified natural one. I don't want to downplay that, rather explain what they actually did. I just thought the media was a bit misleading about it such that I've heard people elsewhere saying we are on the verge of creating our own completely artificial alien life forms or what not.
