Humans have always dreamed of eternal youth and life. Throughout history our desire for longer life spans manifested itself in religion and mythology. Today, our dreams of eternity are being explored scientifically. Where could sciences related to ending aging take our species in the future? Could the science of the 21st century lead to radical life extension?

The Advanced Apes is a new channel examining the evolving story of science. We believe that exploring our current understanding of science and its historical context can help us better understand where it's leading us. And it can help us tackle some of life's biggest questions. So please join us in the discussion!

And subscribe for new episodes every other Monday:
