Jurassic Park is the name of an american science fiction film (1993) from a Michael Crichton novel.
The film is set on the fictional island of Isla Nublar, located off Central America’s Pacific Coast near Costa Rica.
There, wealthy businessman John Hammond and a team of genetic scientists have created a wildlife park of de-extinct dinosaurs through DNA manipulation When industrial sabotage leads to a catastrophic shutdown of the park’s power facilities and security precautions, a small group of visitors and Hammond’s grandchildren struggle to survive and escape the perilous island where dinosaurs are in command.
The scenario imagined by the film is in reality a possible one caused by de extition procedures that are already being studied by scientists.
The possibility to revive, through their DNA extinct animals, even humans has always fascinated scientists.
