Transcript: How can I get grow a new arm?
In animation, two aliens fly across space in a spaceship.
Blynk is a rectangular green alien with spiky hair and long fangs.
Aazoo is a round orange alien with 3 eyes.
With the help of M.A.V.I.S., the spaceship computer, and real Earth scientists, they listen to real Earth children's questions and try to find answers.
A song plays that says BLYNK AND AAZOO
I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU
The name of the show reads "Blynk and Aazoo. Imagine, investigate, invent!"
Scared, Blynk struggles to drive the spaceship across a meteor shower.
Blink says AAAHHHH!
Aazoo takes a selfie of them and says WEEEEEEEE!
M.A.V.I.S. says IMPACT ALERT, IMPACT ALERT!
IMPACT ALERT, IMPACT ALERT!
Blink finale stabilized the spaceship.
M.A.V.I.S. says INQUIRY BOOTH TRANSMITTING.
A real life boy called Ukwense pops up on a screen and says HI BLYNK AND AAZOO.
IT'S ME UKWENSE, AND I
HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU!
Ukwense is around 11 years old. He has braids in a short ponytail. He wears a beige shirt.
Ukwense says I JUST GOT A CAST OFF MY ARM
BECAUSE I BROKE IT.
IT MADE ME THINK,
WOULDN'T IT BE AMAZING IF
I COULD JUST GROW A NEW ONE?
M.A.V.I.S. says ALERT,
INVENTION POTENTIAL HIGH!
ALIEN BRAIN ACTIVITY DETECTED.
ERROR, BRAIN ACTIVITY
Blink has an idea.
M.A.V.I.S. says YES CAPTAIN, CALLING
Aazoo types in and different pictures of people and animals pop up. Then, Blink removes him from the control board and presses a button.
M.A.V.I.S. says CALLING INTERSTELLAR SCIENCE
A real life scientist called Jessie pops up on another screen and says HI BLYNK AND AAZOO!
SO DOES SOMEONE HAVE
A QUESTION FOR ME?
Jessie is in her thirties with blond hair. She has shoulder-length blond hair and wears a pink T-shirt.
Ukwense says HI, I'M UKWENSE.
YES, MY QUESTION IS WOULD IT BE
POSSIBLE TO GROW A NEW ARM?
M.A.V.I.S. says I OFTEN WISH I COULD GROW
IT WOULD MAKE PUSHING AAZOO AWAY
FROM MY INTERFACE MUCH EASIER.
Jessie says HI UKWENSE!
VERY INTERESTING QUESTION, WHERE
DO YOU WANT TO START?
Ukwense says WELL, HOW DOES OUR BODY
Jessie says GOOD QUESTION, UKWENSE,
LOOKS LIKE ITS TIME
TO STEP INTO THE TINY
WORLD OF CELLS!
BLYNK, HUMAN BODY FILES,
Aazoo steps in and types in the computer.
Ukwense says THAT'S A HAMSTER!
M.A.V.I.S. says AAZOO,
MAY I REMIND YOU,
YOU ARE NOT TRAINED TO OPERATE
THE CAPTAIN'S KEYBOARD!
Blink takes Aazoo away and types in.
A clip shows red cells.
M.A.V.I.S. says CELLS ARE THE BUILDING BLOCKS
OF ALL LIVING THINGS,
LARGE OR SMALL, PLANT
OR ANIMAL, EVEN ALIENS.
PUT TRILLIONS OF THESE TOGETHER
AND YOU HAVE A HUMAN.
Ukwense says MY BODY'S MADE OUT
Jessie says IT SURE IS!
BLYNK AND AAZOO, ANY CHANCE
YOU HAVE ANY
OTHER IMAGES OF THINGS THAT
ARE MADE OF CELLS?
Blink says YEEHA!
The clip shows animals and plants.
Ukwense says SO IF EVERYTHING'S MADE
OF TINY CELLS,
HOW COME WE'RE ALL SO DIFFERENT?
Jessie says GOOD QUESTION!
DIFFERENT CELLS RECEIVE
DIFFERENT SETS OF INSTRUCTIONS
FROM SOMETHING CALLED D.N.A.
M.A.V.I.S. says AFFIRMATIVE.
DEOXYRIBONUCLEIC ACID, D.N.A.
IN HUMANS, D.N.A. CONTAINS
INSTRUCTIONS FOR CELLS
TO FORM MUSCLES
WHILE OTHERS FORM BONES.
IN PLANTS THE D.N.A. INSTRUCTS
TO FORM PETALS AND LEAVES.
Ukwense says THEN WHY CAN'T THE D.N.A.
JUST TELL MY CELLS TO
GROW A NEW ARM?
Jessie says BUT THAT'S
THE COOL THING!
WHEN YOU WERE GROWING IN THE
WOMB, IT COULD HAVE.
M.A.V.I.S. says AFFIRMATIVE.
EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS ARE
WHERE ALL THE INSTRUCTIONS ARE
EASY TO READ
AND IN PLAIN VIEW.
SO LEGS, EARS, HEART, EVEN ARMS
FOR PUSHING AWAY ANNOYING ALIENS
CAN BE GROWN FROM THEM.
Ukwense says THIS IS AMAZING!
WHY CAN'T WE USE EMBRYONIC STEM
CELLS TO GROW A NEW ARM?
Jessie says WELL, THE THING IS, ONCE THEY
TURN INTO AN ARM,
THOSE D.N.A. INSTRUCTIONS
AND CAN NO LONGER BE READ.
Ukwense says WHAT ABOUT MY FRIEND'S
HE REGREW AN ENTIRE LEG!
Jessie says GOOD POINT.
THERE ARE DEFINITELY
THAT CAN INSTRUCT THEIR CELLS
AND REGROW BODY PARTS.
BLYNK, SOME EXAMPLES PLEASE!
DEER CAN REGROW ANTLERS.
STARFISH CAN REGROW THEIR LIMBS.
BUT THE MOST AMAZING
Ukwense says AXOLOTL?
Now, the clip shows a small fish swimming.
M.A.V.I.S. says AFFIRMATIVE, THEY CAN REGENERATE
SPINE, EVEN PARTS OF THEIR
HEART AND BRAIN.
Ukwense says OKAY, SO ONLY CERTAIN CREATURES
CAN REGROW BODY PARTS.
Jessie says UH-HUH!
Ukwense says BECAUSE THEY CAN INSTRUCT
THEIR CELLS TO DO CERTAIN
Jessie says THAT'S PRETTY MUCH IT!
Ukwense says BUT IS IT POSSIBLE THAT HUMANS
WILL FIGURE OUT HOW TO DO
THAT IN THE FUTURE?
Jessie says MAYBE AT SOME POINT.
BLYNK, FUTURE FILES, PLEASE!
Aazoo plays a record and smoke fills the room.
M.A.V.I.S. says ALERT, MY SENSORS ARE DETECTING
Ukwense says AAZOO, I THINK YOU PUT THAT
IN THE WAFFLE MAKER?
Aazoo says AI-AI-AI-AI-AI!
Blynk says AA... ZOO.
Jessie says SO BACK TO YOUR QUESTION.
REPROGRAMMING CELLS IS A MYSTERY
SCIENTISTS ARE ONLY NOW
BEGINNING TO UNRAVEL.
BUT IN THE FUTURE, WHO
KNOWS WHAT COULD HAPPEN?
M.A.V.I.S. says AFFIRMATIVE.
HUMANS CANNOT GROW BACK
A WHOLE ARM JUST YET,
BUT THE ARE FINDING WAYS TO
REGENERATE TEETH, EARS,
AND EVEN TINY PARTS OF THE
BRAIN, LUCKY FOR AAZOO.
Aazoo tries to eat the record and Blynk looks annoyed.
Ukwense says THAT'S AMAZING.
IF I COULD, I WOULD GROW
LOTS OF ARMS.
I COULD HOLD FIVE ICE
CREAMS AT THE SAME TIME.
I WOULD HAVE THE BEST BASKETBALL
AND THINK OF ALL THE
PUPPIES I COULD CUDDLE.
M.A.V.I.S. says INSPIRATION DETECTED.
INVENTION STATION IS
Blynk goes in the invention room to create something.
Jessie says UKWENSE, YOUR BODY MIGHT
NOT BE ABLE
TO REGROW LIMBS LIKE
BUT IT DOES HAS
AMAZING HEALING POWERS.
HIGH FIVES FOR THE INCREDIBLE
Aazoo highs five with a robotic hand in a suit Blynk is wearing.
Blynk goes in the invention room and creates a IT APPEARS BLYNK
A MULTI-ARMED SUIT.
Aazoo uses the suit's remote control so that the arms tickle Blynk's body.
Jessie says LOOKS LIKE YOUR INVENTION NEED
A LITTLE MORE WORK, BLYNK.
M.A.V.I.S. says RECALCULATING,
IT APPEARS BLYNK HAS
INVENTED A TICKLE SUIT.
Ukwense says HEY, MAYBE ONE DAY I'LL
BE THE ONE
TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO
GROW NEW ARMS!
Jessie says THAT WOULDN'T SURPRISE ME
IN THE LEAST.
M.A.V.I.S. says THE SEARCH FOR
ALL SYSTEMS ENGAGED.
(electronic music plays)
The end credits roll.
The song says BLYNK AND AAZOO
