Since the dawn of time, human beings have searched desperately for ways to extend their minds, bodies, intellect and souls beyond the mortal experience. The next Leonardo After Hours will take a look back at what we’ve done in the past in the attempt to achieve immortality. We’ll also look at current and future science and technologies that just might make living forever a real possibility – or not. Local experts and a live audience will explore the physical and digital frontiers, as well as the serious ethical and psychological questions already beginning to emerge.
