No. The SRY gene is an RNA inhibitor gene. If its target is altered to not match, you get an XY female.

Wrong forum. Try for astronomy.stackexchange.com. We can't even attempt to answer the bio half yet.

An amusing thing happens. We know that earth is already disappearing as a cosmic radio source. If you substitute 100 years for L in the drake equation, you get expected number of civilizations = 1. That must be us.

Digital frequency generator at constant volume. Kept on increasing frequency until I couldn't hear it. Generator was rated for 32khz.
