From Phenomenica:

Scientists are now looking forward to recreate a woolly mammoth, which walked on Earth 10,000 years ago.

Russian academics have signed a deal with a controversial Korean scientist to clone a woolly mammoth preserved in permafrost in Siberia.

Hwang Woo-Suk – who created the world’s first cloned dog, Snuppy, in 2005 – will implant the nucleus from a mammoth cell into an elephant egg to create a mammoth embryo.

The embryo will then be implanted into an elephant’s womb. The Koreans say research could begin this year.

ONE OF MY DREAMS IS TO STAND ON A WOOLY MAMMOTH AND YELL "THE TIME HAS COME"
