Extinct Species Returned to Life

They used "non-living genetic material" preserved from the gastric-brooding frog to do this. Hmmm. Wow.

Scientists from the University of New South Wales are reporting that they have just successfully created a living embryo of an animal which has been extinct for three decades -- a breakthrough which could eventually be used to revive other species previously wiped from existence.

We'll see if they got the epigenetics right, but still cool.
