Some of us may live forever (video overview)

Morgan Webb brings an overview of three very interesting TED talks, about aging prevention or life extension, technological transformation of humanity (Kurzweil's singularity) and regrowing of body parts. She also links to the full talks at TED.com.

It's just amazing how far science and technology is coming. Subjects which may have seemed like a pure and simple impossibility or a matter of fantasy that goes beyond even science fiction, such as life extension (which if brought far enough could end up being de-facto living forever), are gradually beginning to sound more and more plausible. In fact more plausible than some of the tech which was more commonly dreamed about, such as warp drives, teleportation etc.
