VIDEO: Sheep Grows In Artificial Womb


Inside what look like a ginormous ziplock bag with tubes of blood and fluid, fetal lambs continued to grow and develop — much like they would have inside their mothers. 

Over four weeks, their lungs and brains grew, they grew wool, opened their eyes, wriggled around, and learned to swallow, according to a new study that takes the first step toward an artificial womb.

 One day, this device could help to bring premature human babies to term outside the uterus — but right now, it has only been tested on sheep.
