The Washington Post reports on a new book by Aubrey de Grey that posits that some folks alive today may well live for 1,000 years. Well, actually, they report on his claims and the contest held to debunk his theories of treating aging as a disease — and curing it. De Grey’s book has indeed just been published. And, no scientist won the contest, leaving it all rather amibiguous.

And yeah, Aubrey just looks soooo cyberpunk!
