Longevity RevolutionStreaming Video - 2008
The longevity revolution is under way! In this program, gerontologist Michael Rose introduces viewers to recent breakthroughs in life extension science-and approaches to staying alive until those technologies become readily available. Biological age measurement, caloric restriction, stem cell therapy, cryobiology, and artery-cruising nanobots are discussed, as well as experiments being conducted to increase the life span of mice via nutritional supplements, of nematodes through genetic engineering, and of fruit flies by tricking the natural selection process into promoting the well-being of the species' adults.
