Nope, not going to happen. (Universal Pictures)

It's been over 20 years since the first "Jurassic Park" movie was released, but new research from the University of Manchester confirms that taking dinosaur DNA from insects encased in amber and cloning prehistoric life is not going to happen. Scientists were unable to find any remaining traces of DNA at all in creature specimens encased in copal, the intermediate stage between tree resin and fossilized amber, for 60 to 10,600 years. Earlier research into the half life of DNA also make the horror story of hiding from cloned raptors in the kitchen of a remote island amusement park unlikely, if not impossible.

But at least dinosaur fans will have another "Jurassic Park" film to drown their disappointment in soon: The fourth installment in the franchise, "Jurassic World," is set to hit theaters in summer 2015.
