Mark Hodak, one of the people who helped Musk found the neurotech company in 2016, made the outlandish claim Sunday on Twitter.

"We could probably build jurassic park if we wanted to. wouldn’t be genetically authentic dinosaurs but ... maybe 15 years of breeding + engineering to get super exotic novel species," he wrote.
Later that day, he added, "Biodiversity (antifragility) is definitely valuable; conservation is important and makes sense.
"But why do we stop there? Why don’t we more intentionally try to generate novel diversity?"
Hodak didn't provide specifics about how the company planned to revive the prehistoric beasts, which likely went extinct about 65million years ago.
