All the science, technology and therapies explored in this documentary are being used NOW. Their applications have REAL, solid consequences for the healthy extension of lifespan, including the potential side effect of delaying or postponing death. Everyone knows that death is inevitable, but what if death was not quite so certain? What if death was not the end of life? What if the ultimate illness could be ‘cured’, or at the very least, postponed?
In this 1x59 minute documentary, we investigate the ‘wet science’ of gene therapy and stem cell research-turned-surgery; and the ‘dry science’ of nanotechnology and advancements with bionic limbs.
