We have a guest speaker, William Bains (ex-OUSFG member and instigator of Zool) on Biotechnology and Life Extension: current technology and what is likely to work, current understanding of ageing and what it means for the practicality of Boosterspice, freezing your head and other science fictional technologies, and how long we might have to wait before we live forever.

You might like to think of your favourite example of science fictional biomedical, longevity or immortality treatment, and we can also talk about the possibility that they would work, given what we know or suspect today.
