Curiosity is an American documentary television series that premiered on August 7, 2011, on the Discovery Channel. Each episode focuses on one question in Science, Technology, and Society (e.g., why the RMS Titanic sank) and features a different celebrity host.
Stephen Hawking hosted the premiere episode titled "Did God Create the Universe?", which aired simultaneously on seven Discovery Communications networks : Discovery Channel, TLC, Discovery Fit and Health, Animal Planet, Science, Investigation Discovery, and Planet Green. Season one consisted of 16 episodes and today we' ll present to you Episode 11 entitled : Can you live forever?
As human beings we are limited to how much time we have in life. By taking care of our bodies with exercise and healthy eating, we can easily live up to 100 years, but our body will still slowly weaken if we like it or not. Even an accident or natural occurrence can change that at any time causing problems inside the body and out and possibly even death. Fortunately, with how science is progressing, that could all change.
What would it be like to be immortal?
He reflects on his long life revealing how Science in the 21st century transformed his body, creating a Supercharged Cyber-Human, allowing him to live forever.
He shows the possibilities the future holds with current technology and ideas existing today that may very well change how we live. For an hour, Adam is placed in different situations starting from 2011 and ending around the 2900′s, making him the first man to reach 1000 yrs old.
Along the way he meets complications as a normal human would, including how it all starts, being hit by a truck. From that point, Adam's life is in the hands of science and some amazing things are talked about as well as shown.
Now while most things are a what if, it looks like any and everything is possible with the creativity of humans, including no longer having shorter lifespans and even having the ability to live forever if you so chose to. That can be a pretty tough choice and watching Curiosity may give you a glimpse of what can occur given that decision.
