Ever since we started finding fossils of long extinct species we’ve dreamed of getting to meet them, either by finding some secluded group of survivors, using a time machine, or resurrecting them. As our knowledge of genetics grows, this last option is fast approaching as a possible reality and raises many additional concerns about the technical and ethical challenges, not least of which is where to put them, with their former environments now used by people or other critters. We will examine these challenges today.
