World-first resurfacing project mixes graphene into freshly laid UK road

Posted by in categories: life extension, particle physics

One of the many areas graphene promises to have transformative effects is in fortifying construction materials like concrete and asphalt. A first-of-a-kind trial now underway seeks to apply the wonder material’s impressive attributes to one of the UK’s major thoroughfares, by deploying it in a road resurfacing project along a stretch of the A1 motorway.

Made up of a single sheet of carbon atoms arranged in a honeycomb pattern, graphene offers incredible strength and flexibility, and by incorporating it into materials like asphalt scientists hope to develop road surfaces that last far longer, and therefore cost less to maintain.

Back in 2017 we looked at an interesting take on this from a pair of Italian companies that developed an asphalt material doped with a graphene additive to make it less likely to soften in the heat and crack in the cold under high loads. This product, known as Gipave, also incorporates plastic pellets and was recently rolled out along stretches of UK roads as part of trials to see how it can extend the lifespan of the surface.

Growth-Promoting, Anti-Aging Chemical Compound at the Root of Plant Growth and Animal Embryos

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, life extension

In humans, as well as all vertebrate animals, turning a fertilized egg into an embryo with a little beating heart requires that stem cells differentiate, specialize, and generate specific tissues, such as bones, blood vessels and a nervous system. This process is kickstarted and regulated by retinal. Animals can’t produce their own retinal, though, they must ingest it from plants, or from animals that eat plants.


Plant roots and animal embryos rely on the same chemical for successful development.

What do frog eggs have in common with anti-aging creams? Their success depends on a group of chemical compounds called retinoids, which are capable of generating and re-generating tissues.

Cryogenically frozen bodies and brains of rich people are SNATCHED

Posted by in categories: cryonics, life extension, neuroscience

A bitter divorce battle in Russia has led to cryogenically frozen bodies being seized in an extraordinary day-time raid.

Staff of a company set up by Valeria Udalova, 59 grabbed the remains of people — including from Britain and the US — who paid thousands of pounds hoping to be brought back to life when science advances to allow this.

She and her team raided the company run by her ex-husband Danila Medvedev, 41 near Moscow, which is home to Russia’s leading cryo-storage facility, say reports.

Elon Musk Mocks Jeff Bezos’ Attempt to Develop Immortality Tech

Posted by in categories: Elon Musk, internet, life extension, robotics/AI, sustainability

#ElonMusk is on a better path than Bezos is partly because he’s working on his brain chip and once that brain chip has been made dubbed complete he can make it so it works with tech and we can merge Tech with people which means that we can make a life out of tech and have our body be completely made robotic and as long as we have materials like synthetic blood that feeds and sustains the brain with the proper nutrients to stay alive. Theoretically u could live much longer. He seems to have the robot body and robot made and chip almost complete now he needs the synthetic sustainable blood for a human brain 🧠 implant into the robot tech body using Brian chip to control it. Immortality In theory the brain doesn’t have to be in the robotic body it can still be connected to the body through a central location via #StarLink #Robot links https://fb.watch/7UAKDX92Vh/ https://fb.watch/7Uyo7JYdok/ “Life is a video game in that aspect” But even without the brain merge you will be able to pair our minds with these AI robots and use them on 🌎 earth or beyond like a ship to #Mars or any other place that can get the signal from the brain to the robotic body.


Elon is at it again.

Aging: It’s More Complicated Than We Thought

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry, life extension, neuroscience

Summary: A new study on aging reveals a surprising discovery about the connection between protein shape and mitochondrial health.

Source: Buck Institute.

Every cell in the body goes through thousands of chemical reactions each day, and each reaction involves tiny protein molecules folded into precise shapes to perform their functions. Misfolded proteins underlie some of the most common and devastating diseases of aging, like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. A major focus of aging research is discovering ways to maintain protein shape and prevent misfolded proteins from wreaking havoc on cellular function.
