Fancy retirement reset to the age of 900?

Abstract:
Cambridge University geneticist Aubrey de Grey has said people will soon be able to live to 1,000.

His idea is that science will eventually be able to repair molecular and cellular damage in the human body. In the future, people would no longer become frail or need care as they got older.

"I think the first person to live to 1,000 might be 60 already," he said.

Scientist Ray Kurzwell goes even further. "I and many other scientists now believe that in around 20 years we will have the means to reprogramme our bodies' stone-age software so we can halt, then reverse, ageing. Then nanotechnology will let us live for ever."
