    Interesting 40 year anniversary!

    I came across an interesting historic date today on wikipedia:


    On this day...

    December 3:

    1967 – At Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa, cardiac surgeon Christiaan Barnard performed the first successful human heart transplant on Louis Washkansky.



    I remember that this was hailed as a major medical breakthrough back then. I wonder if after all this time we are long overdue for another major medical milestone. I sort of had a certain kind of cure in mind.

    I wonder if history works this way. They say that scientific progress has been picking up speed.

    Just a thought.
