Scientists believe it may be possible to clone a woolly mammoth within five years after finding well-preserved bone marrow in a thigh bone recovered from permafrost soil in Siberia.

Teams from Russia's Sakha Republic's mammoth museum and Japan's Kinki University will launch fully-fledged joint research next year aiming to recreate the giant mammal, Japan's Kyodo News reported from Yakutsk, Russia.

By replacing the nuclei of egg cells from an elephant with those taken from the mammoth's marrow cells, embryos with mammoth DNA can be produced, Kyodo said, citing the researchers.

The scientists will then plant the embryos into elephant wombs for delivery as the two species are close relatives, the report said.

I'm sorry, but what's the point of doing this? I'm guessing its cost a lot of money for research, which could of been better spent on other research projects, like curing cancer.

Hey, actually... maybe they could start a tourist park on an island and populate it with dinosaurs next.

To tell you the truth I find this fascinating. The possibilities if this were successful is at the very least, interesting.

This is indeed fascinating. We don't need a time machine, we can bring the history to us instead.

Seriously, bringing back such animal, without others of it's kind or a habitat to support it. That's not cool

Next, let's bring back the humanlike species. eh?

I dunno, sounds like a solution to world hunger... amirite?
No way!

Because those with the technology to bring an extinct animal back to life could not possibly have the technology to create an environment suitable for it :rolleyes:

Meh, I think that these scientist are finding ways to kill time

But only working on a wooly mammoth? Come on, even i can think of things to be cloned better than a mammoth. Well, at least they're trying to revive a prehistoric animal...so good for them

That's one more species that we have to feed

true. Even if we can bring this creature back to life... do you think we can create a suitable habitat for it to last its whole life span

i doubt we can keep it alive for 2 months

    Crazy how much 3d printing has come in the last few years. Sad that it's not as easily modifiable though
  • Varine Varine:
    I bought an Ender 3 during the pandemic and tinkered with it all the time. Just bought a Sovol, not as easy. I'm trying to make it use a different nozzle because I have a fuck ton of Volcanos, and they use what is basically a modified volcano that is just a smidge longer, and almost every part on this thing needs to be redone to make it work
  • Varine Varine:
    Luckily I have a 3d printer for that, I guess. But it's ridiculous. The regular volcanos are 21mm, these Sovol versions are about 23.5mm
  • Varine Varine:
    So, 2.5mm longer. But the thing that measures the bed is about 1.5mm above the nozzle, so if I swap it with a volcano then I'm 1mm behind it. So cool, new bracket to swap that, but THEN the fan shroud to direct air at the part is ALSO going to be .5mm to low, and so I need to redo that, but by doing that it is a little bit off where it should be blowing and it's throwing it at the heating block instead of the part, and fuck man
  • Varine Varine:
    I didn't realize they designed this entire thing to NOT be modded. I would have just got a fucking Bambu if I knew that, the whole point was I could fuck with this. And no one else makes shit for Sovol so I have to go through them, and they have... interesting pricing models. So I have a new extruder altogether that I'm taking apart and going to just design a whole new one to use my nozzles. Dumb design.
  • Varine Varine:
    Can't just buy a new heatblock, you need to get a whole hotend - so block, heater cartridge, thermistor, heatbreak, and nozzle. And they put this fucking paste in there so I can't take the thermistor or cartridge out with any ease, that's 30 dollars. Or you can get the whole extrudor with the direct driver AND that heatblock for like 50, but you still can't get any of it to come apart
  • Varine Varine:
    Partsbuilt has individual parts I found but they're expensive. I think I can get bits swapped around and make this work with generic shit though
