The Future of Death (part 1)
Human lifespans are ever increasing, thanks to advances in medicine and access to better health care. It doesn't end there, however, as scientists are constantly looking for ways to improve the human condition and essentially cheat death. Only two years ago, Google founded the California Life Corporation (Calico), and though they have not been entirely overt about what they do there, information indicates they are not just about curing cancer, but essentially "curing aging itself." If the number of studies on life extension that are being conducted around the world is any indication, it can be said that we really are looking at a global war against aging and death.
