Humanity has always been obsessed with the concept of immortality and the secrets to longevity have largely remained a mystery – until scientists begun looking to nature for answers. Molecular Biologist Nicklas Brendborg takes us on a journey from farthest reaches of the globe to the most cutting-edge research as he explores what nature has to teach us about aging. We meet jellyfish who display reverse aging; the Greenland shark who is older than America; naked mole-rats and lobsters who are virtually ageless; redwoods that survive thousands of years; and in the soil of Easter Island, the key to eternal youth. The natural world, with all its wonder and mysteries may hold the answers to all of our questions, and it’s been under our noses the whole time.
