No Mention Of Stephen Boyd?

Scientists in Tel Aviv develop a "mini submarine" that they hope will help in treating illnesses.

No, it's not an actual submarine, but it is a nano-machine made from biological materials. It's supposed to target cancer cells and malfunctioning proteins -- presumably it can be programmed -- and deliver various medicines to combat the problem.

It's still three years away from the planned "release" date, but it's exciting news.

And yes, the linked article already name-dropped Raquel Welch. Stephen Boyd gets top billing for Fantastic Voyage on I wondered why it's always Raquel Welch who gets mentioned in jokes about FV, but I looked at the cast list and I didn't recognize anybody else.
