Woolly Mammoth

Russian and Korean researchers have come up with a joint plan to inject Mammoth DNA into the eggs of an Indian Elephant, who would be the surrogate mother. Mammoth remains have been found in the Siberian permafrost, so enough has been preserved to allow the extraction of DNA in the 10,000 year old beasts. Gestation usually takes 22 months, and the entire experiment will take place over the next 5 years.
