AbstractIn his Foundation series, published in the 1950’s, Isaac Asimov imagined Civilization capable of colonizing the entire Universe. This feat is unlikely to occur. Strikingly, Asimov referred to a 70-old man as an old individual who is unlikely to live much longer. Thus, in literature’s most daring fantasy, the pace of aging could not be slowed. Yet, given the present pace of discovery in the aging field, this feat might become a reality within our life time, with science surpassing science fiction.
