The Life Extension Project is one of the current active projects being undertaken by The Hanso Foundation. Its ultimate goal is to extend the lifespan of humans so that we can lead fuller lives. The project has been claimed to have successfully extended the life of their prize Orangutan, Joop. It has also been suggested that Alvar Hanso himself used the project to extend his own life.
“Given enough time, there is no end to what human beings can accomplish, no frontiers that we cannot cross, and no experiences that we cannot live to pass on to future generations.”
