Craig Venter, who managed to make science both lucrative and glamorous with his pioneering approach to gene sequencing and synthetic biology, is taking on a new venture: aging...

...He also took a crack at creating artificial life...

...The new company doesn’t aim to extend human life so much as to help keep people healthy as they get older.

“The challenge is when you live into your 80s, 90s, to 100, living in a way that is decrepit and old is of zero value,” Diamandis said...

Doesn't this sound a heck of a lot like Alliance Digital Studios' KNOWLEDGE? We don't know what's creepier--the name of this new company "Human Longevity Inc." (the fictional company in KNOWLEGE is Gen-Lon--short for Genetic Longevity Inc.) or that this guy looks like an older version of our very own Production Manager, David Kennedy. {Cue Twilight Zone music.}
