Hello Matt

tried the link to download the DVD and it didn't work.

Just curious about the whole topic, I got past the immortality thing around the age of 20. I dont really want to live for centuries (I couldn't live with paying tax that long) besides my liver will give out long before then due to regular supply of alcohol I give it.

Mind you living to 200 would probably be the only way I am likely to get to orbit. :)

Andy

If your topic doesn't fit in any of the other forums, come here to talk about space and technology in general.

This is why I asked the question at the end of my post because I might have misunderstood what is said under "SpaceFlight Cafe".

The Video explores the technology (Technology in general - stem cells, genetic engineering, technology to augment ourselves etc) that might enable us to extend human life, how is it relevent? Well space exploration takes a lot of time and the only way any of you here are going to be around to see massive space colonization is if ageing is slowed down.

As I said, please feel free to lock my topic if I have posted in the wrong place.

That other thread you locked, why didn't you do that before it was viewed 5000 times? I gave a simple update on the mprize progress and how it's doing. I don't see how that topic was spam when it is directly relevent to space travel.

Like someone else said in the thread that you locked, "Exploring space takes a long time" and seeing how slow space travel is going ahead now, it would be great to have those extra years, in good health to take part in this space revolution, and i don't mean just sub-orbital.

Andy,

I just realized the link is not working any more, thanks for pointing that out, go here http://www.imminst.org/film.php , scroll down and you will see a bit torrent link that works.

Well, some how every social and human problem can be linked to space travel.

The reason I locked the other topics, is not only because of the news only, but that it would create an endless debate, and not a civil one.
And since you know that some members of this community don't agree with you, you should know that the members who "do" support it, are already member, or just reading the forums at http://www.imminst.org .

So from my perspective, all people who "want" to know about it, are already up to date (except maybe a very little few), and the people who became angry or irritated about it.. would have a reason to attack you.

It's not in our interests, neither yours to have problems like this.
Stress is bad for health :D

EDIT:
Personally, I'm happy with the life I have, I support research to cure people, and to extend life.
But that's not the reason this website exists, and neither do I post Space Related news at imminst.org.
And I just want to live my life, not thinking about how or when I die.. and that I need to work to extend it, I want to live my life, as long and healthy I can with doing and enjoying the things I love. I respect imminst.org, I respect the research, I even support it, but I'm not an active member, or seek to find news related to it, on a space website I daily use and own.
I hope we can all respect others people opinion, interests and way of life.
I'll not lock this topic, so there is atleast 1 place on this forum people can share their opinion, or challange my point of view.

The other topic should fade away.. cause some members, of both communities definitely didn't behaved themself like they should have.

Well, I have not been following this topic at all, but I understand the need for long life as related to long duration space voyages. Hibernation has been mentioned in the past for the same reason.

But it is looking like I will need to be immortal just to see a return to the moon the way things have been going!
