Scientists found a wooly mammoth carcass in Siberia that still has liquid blood preserved inside it after 10,000 years. Now it’s only a matter of time.

There’s been talk of cloning, but it’s apparently being headed by Hwang Woo-suk – the guy who faked a lot of stem cell research in the mid-2000s – so I wouldn’t hold your breath (unless you think you can hold it for another 10,000 years. My money’d be on this guy.)

What’s just as cool is the cryoprotectant found in its blood – a kind of biological antifreeze. Many animals today have cryoprotectant, but (as far as I can gather) the sort they reckon the mammoth must have had is way beyond what’s still around today.
