and from there how long it will take for pharmaceutical company to elaborate a compound/drug  to fight aging in humans?

do you think with in 20 years we will have a drug that will prevent us from aging and eventually that will regenerate us as well?

Unfortunately, I don't know much about the current stage of this, but I hope with all my heart that this comes to pass in the near future. I don't want to wait my whole life for it, I want to experience it - and pretty soon, too!

Concerning anti-aging in humans, I'd say we'll get there until mid-cenut the latest. Every year sooner than that, I'd be thrilled, but by 2050s, I really expect it to be reality. If it isn't...well... my poor optimist futurist heart.


"All scientific advancement due to intellegence overcoming, compensating, for limitations. Can't carry a load, so invent wheel. Can't catch food, so invent spear. Limitations. No limitations, no advancement. No advancement, culture stagnates. Works other way too. Advancement before culture is ready. Disastrous."

There's definitely truth in that...

I expect some progress in mice within this decade, but for humans, maybe some research studies in the 2030's and available products that are expensive and unreliable and have all sorts of side effects in the 2040's.  In the 2050's they'll be more effective and cheaper, and by the 2060's I think we'll start to see some really healthy, really old (mostly rich) people.

Yea I see pretty much the same time scale.

This post made me think of this article; http://arstechnica.c...or-rich-chumps/

^ Yes, that's one of Kurzweil's most salient points: technologies subject to the law of accelerating returns follow a predictable curve where they start out unaffordable and unreliable, and eventually end up working great while costing virtually nothing.

I think the timeline is wrong, I dont expect a ageing cure until around 2100.

I'm tempted to agree with you (based on my somewhat limited knowledge). Of course, I'd replace around 2100 with around 2150-2160.

Why?

Because I'm afraid that "stretching" the Hayflick limit in humans will take a very long time.

The research in telomerase introduction in cells seems promising though.

I agree. Also a lot depend on us and how we contribute with funds and political pressure.
