This seems like a strange phrase to type, but here it goes:

Quantum Apostrophe: Go back to crying over your 1970s space posters, you delusional fruitcake. When the first anti-aging drugs hit the market and you space whackjobs still won't have anything more than that treehouse for adults you call the ISS, you'll see what I mean.


Quantum Apostrophe: Oh so you already picked out your curtains and countertop finish for your Mars condo? Gonna 3D print a living room? Private space your way there? Or going to use the space elevator? Maybe stop over at the souvenir shop in the ISS?


Quantum Apostrophe: So we don't live longer than we did a hundred years ago? It's all my fantasy? But we're totally gonna live in space. Got it.


Awwwww, it looks like someone's atoms are feeling old this morning.

So...Rush is going to live forever then? How thoroughly depressing.

We now know, for instance, that the rejuvenation of Turritopsis dohrnii and some other members of the genus is caused by environmental stress or physical assault. We know that, during rejuvenation, it undergoes cellular transdifferentiation, an unusual process by which one type of cell is converted into another

Rings a bell...

FTFA: "Once we determine how the jellyfish rejuvenates itself, we should achieve very great things. My opinion is that we will evolve and become immortal ourselves."

We can rename this planet Gideon.
