Synopsis by Rob Ferrier
This installment of the series Stealing Time examines the frontiers of the new science of aging. Stealing Time: The New Science of Aging -- Quest for Immortality examines the natural history of aging and approaches several different questions, including why different animals age at different rates and why some appear to age not at all. The video posits the theory that the human lifespan can be extended well past 120 years and even proposes that many young people alive today may live well into the 22nd century. Among those interviewed are Dr. Thomas Perls, a geritrician; Stephen Austad, a zoologist; and Tom Johnson, a researcher of longevity genes.
