The impossible, three-headed monster of Ancient Greek mythology, the Chimaera, may have started off as a fantasy, but today, the word “chimera” can be used to refer to anything that seems impossible. This includes the real-life, interspecies animals that humans have successfully created. Watch to find out how myth directly influenced science, not only in language, but in how science approaches the possibility of an interspecies future. Part of the "Monstrum" series.
