Dolly the sheep, 1996-2003
Dolly the sheep became a scientific sensation when her birth was announced in 1997. Her relatively early death in February 2003 fuels the debate about the ethics of cloning research and the long-term health of clones.

What is it about Dolly that is so special? How was she created? And did she die young because she was a clone?
