What Dolly Wrought: Retro Report Looks at Cloning

Last month I blogged about Retro Report, a new outfit that produces deeply researched videos that bring history up to date. I found today’s report especially interesting, as it explores some of the same material I wrote about in my piece for National Geographic about de-extinction my piece for National Geographic about de-extinction my piece for National Geographic about de-extinction in April. The Retro Report team looks at the sensation caused back in 1997 by Dolly, the cloned sheep. All of the scare-mongering about armies of zombie clones has blotted out people’s understanding of cloning’s actual history, its disappointments, and its big impacts today.
