At Motherboard, my friend Sean Yeaton writes:
Cloning, as with flying cars, robot servants and teleportation, is one of the great promises science fiction has successfully ushered into science fact. Just yesterday Russian and South Korean scientists signed a deal on joint research intended to recreate a woolly mammoth, the famed prehistoric Snuffleupagus, which sauntered the Earth tens of thousands of years ago.
All I understood from those sentences is that they’re cloning Snuffleupagus! I guess this means that he actually existed. Told you so! High five! (Thanks, Wikipedia, for just informing that Snuffy actually had a first name: Aloysius! High five again!)
But seriously, it’s pretty scary stuff. Check out Motherboard’s film on the topic of cloning: The Clone Farm.
