THE SCENE is a frigid, windswept corner of Siberia, where scientists labor to free a creature trapped in the ice 20,000 years ago. Raising the Mammoth is a documentary about locating a huge, prehistoric, ivory-tusks-poking-out-of-the-permafrost woolly mammoth. Later comes the really hard part of the expedition - lifting the mammoth by helicopter to a place where researchers will spend years studying it.

We have no indication that Neandertals were brutish or barbaric. Sure they were powerfully built, but they also had brains larger than ours.
If anything the archaic humans who probably wiped them out through genocide and forced assimilation, aka rape, were the brutish barbarians.

The curious scientist in me says I can't wait to see how it turns out. However, the practical side of me says this might not be so wise. I agree with others that it might not be such a good idea to bring something back to life in a world it's never known. It didn't live in a world like ours is now. It might be better for it to not come back.
