Can we live forever in the cloud? Will we ever bend time to our will?Can we live forever in a machine?Imagine you pass away but your brain lives on as an android. Well some scientists are working on this already, they are trying to map the ENTIRE brain and upload it to a computer. Dr Josie Peters leads a group of scientists to tell us if we can really live forever.
Giving birth is dangerous. Are artificial wombs a solution?Full ectogenesis is the idea of conceiving a baby in vitro and gestating the child for the entire gestational period of 40 weeks.We already have partial ectogenesis implemented in neonatal intensive care units across the world from 21 weeks of gestation to full-term. This means almost half of the gestational period required to make a healthy human being can happen outside of the body already.Traditional natural gestation is very costly, and it's often one of the most dangerous things that many women will choose to do. Artificial wombs allow women to choose where they want to direct their labor and their physical resources, while also not sacrificing having children.

SpaceX's Starship launch vehicle has the potential to explore the solar system in a bold, new -- and supersized -- way. Planetary scientist Jennifer Heldmann talks about how reusable, large-scale spacecraft like Starship could help humanity achieve its next galactic leaps and usher in a new era of space exploration, from investigating the solar system's many ocean worlds to launching bigger telescopes that can see deeper into the universe.
