In Brave New World, Aldous Huxley depicts a world in which it is possible to genetically engineer humans so that they are suited to their roles in society. The assembly line approach to creating human life manufactures human beings of varying but controlled intelligences and capabilities with the intention of maintaining social stability – of keeping everyone happy. In the past 40 years, scientists, through experiments with plants and animals, have moved closer to the capability of genetically engineering human beings. For this assignment, create a timeline of about 10 events starting in 1970 and extending to around 2030, which tracks developments in or problems with genetic engineering and predicts what is likely to happen in the next 20 years.
