Back to life...

The New Scientist this week has a very interesting article on what extinct species are most likely to be considered to be brought back to life as, and when, the technology to do so becomes reality.

Ten Extinct Beasts That Could Walk The Earth Again (New Scientist; Wednesday 7th January 2009)

Whilst I'd love to see the Sabre-Toothed Tiger, Giant Beaver or Short-Faced Bear in the flesh I'd like to see the in controlled environments. I guess the Dodo would probably be the least offensive back in the wild. After resurrecting the poor Gorilla and other species currently here which will probably be gone by the time the technology is available as we can already map their DNA and keep tissue and bone samples from living specimens now as opposed to playing with long dead relics.
