Dolly the Sheep
The Uproar That Accompanied Dolly the Sheep

On July 5, 1996 scientists at the Roslin Institute in Edinburgh, Scotland successfully cloned an adult mammal for the first time. The mammal was created from cells of a 6-year old sheep and they named it, Dolly. Here, scientists responsible for this breakthrough discuss the delicate process of cloning, the reactions once the news leaked in February of 1997, and the ethical questions that arose from it. Both the positives and negatives with cloning are discussed, as it is said that it can be used to cure rare human diseases, but that it could also be used to make copies of “your worst enemy.”
