Michio Kaku: Can we bring dinosaurs back from the dead?

Michio Kaku: Can we bring dinosaurs back from the dead?

(4:18) Science is very quickly turning our wildest imaginations into reality. Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku talks about the possibility of resurrecting dinosaurs by "turning on" their ancient genes. And now that we have sequenced the genes of Neanderthal man, it may be possible to bring him back to life.

He keeps pronouncing Neanderthal incorrectly. I used to do it that way too until I learned the correct way. English pronunciation /niˈændərˌθɔls/, /niˈændərˌtɔls/, /niˈændərˌtɑls/ or /neɪˈɑndərˌtɑls/ you pronounce the end as "tal" not "thal"

Didn't Hitler manage to resurrect something very like the ancestral auroch by selective breeding? The breeding program would work by restoring effectiveness to ancient genes that were still present in the modern animals.

A Neanderthal? As Kaku says, in a zoo or in Harvard? There's an ethical minefield here. But the UK's Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority (www.hfea.gov.uk) has addressed some of them already.

I really hope I live long enough to see some of this happen. I'd be happy with a mammoth born from an elephant.

These people must not be allowed to continue without first having their eyelids propped open and being forced to watch Jurassic Park 648 times. Special attention will be given to providing close-ups of all the most gruesome parts.
