Summary
Host Neil deGrasse Tyson will tackle one of science's major challenges in each video, framed as a simple question that ordinary people wonder and worry about. Neil will guide us as he explores dramatic discoveries and the frontiers of research that connect each central, provocative mystery. Episode includes: 1) Can My Car Live Forever? - Irv Gordon has driven his 1966 Volvo more than 2.7 million miles. But don't ask if you can drive it yourself. 2) Replacing Body Parts Custom-made hearts, lungs, kidneys, and other organs could revolutionize organ transplantation. 3) Can We Slow Aging? - A gene called FOXO may be a real elixir of longevity. Can all of us harness its power? 4) Profile: Jason Leigh Computer scientist Jason Leigh has a novel way of achieving mmortality-creating a lifelike avatar of himself. 5) Human Hibernation - Medical researchers and ER doctors are testing therapies that cool down patients to save their lives
