What would you give to have an extra you? Someone to do all the cooking, cleaning, and dinners with the in-laws? While scientists haven’t gotten there quite yet, human cloning will be a scientific possibility very soon. Should we do it? Or is it morally wrong? We’ll find out why two might not always be better than one in this episode of Futurestalgia.
Futurestalgia is a Fusion original web series that combines our nostalgia for the big ideas of the past and our interest in the real science of the future. In every episode, we’ll look back at an awesome future-tech object from pop culture, imagine a world where it exists, and then reveal, using hard science, why we don’t have it yet.
