Prometea - cloned horse Well, congratulations science. An Italian lab has just cloned a horse. I'm mixed about this. There are the benefits to science - the further refinement of cloning technologies, etc., and the potential benefits to humankind - bringing back extinct species, etc. ... but, it seems like we're moving at a breakneck speed down the cloning path without fully understanding the long term implications of the technology. As history has shown us, we usually leave a mess behind that future generations will need to clean up. For more on cloning, companies that do it, ethics discussion, etc, check out this link.
