Reawakening Extinct Species (#710H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

New genetic technologies are making it possible for scientists to try to bring back extinct species. Meet researcher Ben Novak at the University of California, Santa Cruz, who is working to revive the passenger pigeon, once the most abundant bird in the world, and Harvard Medical School's George Church, who is trying to engineer a woolly mammoth. It may be possible, but is it right to turn back the clock?
