Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever

Abstract:
Woody Allen once joked that he didn't want to achieve immortality through his work; he wanted to achieve it through not dying. According to futurist/inventor Ray Kurzweil and Dr. Terry Grossman, in the unlikely event Allen stays alive for a few decades more, technology will progress to the point where he'll get his wish -- or at least a few thousand more years of life. Today's baby boomers, the oldest of whom are getting ready for retirement, have the potential to live decades -- if not centuries -- more.
