Woolly Mammoth: Cloned from Bone Marrow, possibly within 5 Years

Came across this article where it discusses undamaged mammoth DNA obtain in Siberia through a recently discovered thigh bone: Woolly mammoth to be brought back to life from cloned bone marrow 'within five years'

Apparently finding the necessary undamaged DNA has finally been achieved, so Russian and Japanese scientists are working to make the Woolly Mammoth no longer an extinct species.

I think it's pretty cool.
