Saw this last week. Mega cool in my opinion. They expect many more preserved specimens of ancient animals to surface as the Siberian permafrost continues to melt due to climate change. Should answer a lot of questions about evolution, as scientists can exactly replicate the DNA sequences of these extinct species when they are so well preserved.
As a side note, they are already talking about cloning this thing because they will have 100% of the gene sequence. I don’t think this is a good idea... I would entertain the idea of cloning species that have gone extinct recently as a direct result of human influence, but to clone something that naturally went extinct prior to Homo sapiens becoming the dominant global species? Very bad idea IMO. Jurassic Park scenarios come to mind.
Most the DNA is severely degraded even at 10,000 yrs frozen. But one can hope.
One of the articles I read last week said that scientists would be able to extract perfectly preserved DNA from this wolf’s teeth. That is what got them talking about the cloning.
Really cool!! But mentioning the “E” word and the fact the earth is older than 10,000 years is a trigger around here.
There is an interesting theory out there that the amount of carbon being released out of the Siberian permafrost is what is dramatically influencing climate change.
In other words, a slight uptick in temps, caused by [ insert your beliefs] is allowing that permafrost to thaw and release 10's of thousands of years worth of captured carbon, thereby creating a bad cycle of carbon entering the atmosphere.
Carbon in the form of methane, right? I’ve read that, too. Makes sense- climate change exacerbated by climate change.
Climate change is not a belief....it just is
Actually the Earth is only 6,023 years old per Bishop Ussher. Give or take a few billion.
".....his chronology that sought to establish the time and date of the creation as "the entrance of the night preceding the 23rd day of October... the year before Christ 4004"; that is, around 6 pm on 22 October 4004 BC according to the proleptic Julian calendar."
Mega epic cool. Dude so awesome.
