Not to burst anyone's bubble, but this is pretty old news science wise. I remember in the 8th grade being psyched because we watched a movie about them possibly in the near future reproducing mammoths by taking the DNA from it, injecting it into an elephant whom, and making like a 1/50 part Mammoth/elephant. Eventually, after breeding and breeding (probably decades of elephant sex) They could make like a 99/100 Mammoth.

What?    
   
Half-Life refers to the amount of time that it takes half of the radioactive atoms to decay into a stable element (the same one or a transmuted one). It means they are throwing off alpha, beta, or gamma particles because of the instability. If blood is insanely radioactive, sure it would have  a half life. But that's not a thing. And even if it did, the blood and flesh wouldn't evaporate into nothing (a banana might be a different story because the potassium 40 turns into argon 40 which is a gas. But even then, there is not enough potassium in a banana to completely vanish because of radioactive decay).

preserved blood you say?

lets build an island with tons of genetically engineered mammoths

spared no expense

Imagine if they cloned it and it didn't look like how we predicted? I know we have evidence and stuff, but just imagine it.

this **** has happened like 20 times but DNA has a half life of under 600 years so we can't clone things beyond that time, our only hope to clone dinosaurs or whatever is reverse evolution through genetic engineering

I'm just going to come right out and ask, is the vagina intact?

WHY ARE WE NOT FUNDING THIS?

If they clone this and mammoths become like a normal thing, I want some to be genetically modified to be the size of a lap dog and domesticated.
