Slide1Phil, Stephen, and Michael D. discuss new technologies (and ideas for new technologies) that push the limits of the possible.

Examples of technologies that push the limits:

Faster-than-light travel

The Star-Trek style transporter.

Indefinite human lifespan

Personal flight – Superman style


Retrieval of all extinct species
