The Age newspaper reports that scientists believe they will have a drug within the next few years that will extend the average human lifespan to 150 years. The full article is available at http://goo.gl/B7yfG.
The typical retirement age today is 65 so that means 85 years of retirement, assuming we don't change the retirement age. More likely, most people will work until age 100 or 120 years or so. Many of us also will get to know our great-great-great-grandchildren.
A bigger question in my mind is, "What will our health be like in those years?" I'd hate to have years and years of dementia and physical decline.
So who wants to live to be 150?
