Dolly the sheep lived for 6 years. died of a cancer of some type. i don't think lifespan is the issue, the lack of embryos and a nice uterus to grow them in would be the real issue.
maybe science holds the key.....remember main stream knowledge is not the only kind.

Oh I would. Try me.
They are extinct creatures. We have no right to try and bring them back.
Nevermind dinosaurs for a second. Let's say the modern industrial world is directly related to the cause of a species going extinct. Someone says 'we had no right to make them go extinct'. Would you approve of resurrecting them in that case?
I think that cat is out of the bag already.

There was a paleontologist several years ago that soaked a dinosaur bone in an acid wash to clean it and when she came back 23 minutes later the marrow had been revived and blood vessels could be seen and most of the books are having to be rewritten because of her discovery...
In the course of testing a B. rex bone fragment further, Schweitzer asked her lab technician, Jennifer Wittmeyer, to put it in weak acid, which slowly dissolves bone, including fossilized bone—but not soft tissues. One Friday night in January 2004, Wittmeyer was in the lab as usual. She took out a fossil chip that had been in the acid for three days and put it under the microscope to take a picture. “[The chip] was curved so much, I couldn’t get it in focus,” Wittmeyer recalls. She used forceps to flatten it. “My forceps kind of sunk into it, made a little indentation and it curled back up. I was like, stop it!” Finally, through her irritation, she realized what she had: a fragment of dinosaur soft tissue left behind when the mineral bone around it had dissolved. Suddenly Schweitzer and Wittmeyer were dealing with something no one else had ever seen. For a couple of weeks, Wittmeyer said, it was like Christmas every day.
