    Artificial Jellyfish Created From Silicone And Rat’s Heart - Bioengineers from Harvard University have created an artificial Jellyfish using silicone and muscle cells from a rat’s heart. Scientists have named the synthetic creature a Medusoid. The discovery can be used to save lives in the future. [Click on Image Or Source on Top to See Full News]

Decellularization is a tissue engineering technique designed to strip out the cells from a donor organ, leaving nothing but connective tissue that used to hold the cells in place. This scaffold of connective tissue - called a "ghost organ" for its pale and almost translucent appearance - can then be reseeded with a patient's own cells, with the goal of regenerating an organ that can be transplanted into the patient without fear of tissue rejection.This is in the experimental stage.

Related to the jellyfish and corals, Siphonophore is a continuous chain of specialized polyps - individual animals that grow from one another in an organized colony. Some in the colony are devoted to feeding, armed with stinging cells to snag fish or invertebrates. Others are devoted to locomotion, propelling the whole group with a continuous pumping motion while some exist only to reproduce. #Siphonophore

Blue Buttons are not true jellyfish, but are Chondrophores. These are actually colonies of polyps. In other words, they are like a tiny colony of animals.

Jellyfish chandelier. Imagine hundreds of these hanging from a ceiling in a large room, at different heights, forming a "bloom" (apparently, the name for a large group of them in one area!)
