Woolly Mammoth Could Potentially Be Resurrected In 4 Years

With recent breakthroughs in cloning technology, scientist, Dr. Teruhiko Wakayama, Akira Iritani a professor at Kyoto University is trying to restart his campaign to clone a mammoth. The plan is to extract nuclei from a Woolly mammoth's frozen muscle tissue, and plant it in egg cells of a African elephant. By doing this the African elephant will become the surrogate mother of the Woolly mammoth. Woolly mammoths died out about 12,000 years ago, but this scientific advancement can bring us closer to this extinct beast.

  8. this is an interesting blog you have here man. i'm following you. keep the posts coming, and keep me updated.

    by the way, about the woolly mammoth, i have no doubt that it can be recreated if we still have samples of its genetic code. definitely mind-blowing stuff.

    what are your thoughts on the technological singularity?

  10. Great blog, man. Sub'd!

    On a relevant note, I'm always skeptical of "Scientists say that X will be available in Y years." These things never work out on the timescales they imagine, if at all. Interesting possibilities, but I'll continue to not hold my breath for it.
