We’re born, we grow old, we die. It’s a rhythm long considered inevitable. But is it? Or is aging merely a disease awaiting a cure? Will science one day stave off aging or even reverse it? Leading scientists explore the biology of aging and recent breakthroughs that some think could have people living healthfully to 120 or beyond by the end of this century.
