    It seems, they live approximately 1 year....I thought they were more long-lived organisms

    Maybe you thought they lived longer because they are so hard to kill?

    Partly could be for this reason... But long ago, I was reading about Microbial Ecology, concretely, about the Extremophiles and looking over this book again I found that some species of Tardigrades in dry enviroments can slow down their metabolism , to do this, they dehydraty themselves, fixing besides the damage in their DNA.... reason which leads to live more years . It seems like under laboratory conditions they live between 5 and 8 years .

    The IRISIN hormone released during exercise might protect against Alzheimer’s
    ( Irisin is produced within the muscles during intense exercise and physical activity)

    Yes or as alternative I suggest you the suspension training (( TRX system )) and the most important, Keep Hydrated with Osteocalcin´s << herbal tea >> [​IMG] ---- Eric Kandel will explain you better the role of the Osteocalcin and the RbAp48 protein .

    I was just wondering who was this guy, so I was surfing and I found some forums about him...in fact, he has his own forum » Science and Futurism - Few replies in Night Sky & Megastructures...This isn't my field, but that about the Dyson sphere/swarm was interesting !! Sneezy, welcome back :)

    Well thank you. Very kind. You may blame Sparkchaser for my redarkening of your door. Please do send him all sorts of hatemail regarding this. :)

    I have a bit of a mancrush on Arthur, 'tis true. He also has a Youtube channel that is now relatively well produced (much better than it was a couple of years ago but still fairly repetitive graphics wise) where he explains his views in his characteristic manner. I do not think him a genius, but he is just so damned cute and dry...

    So, personalities aside, do we prefer the Bezos or the Musk plan to get us off this glorious rock? More broadly, I'd be curious about opinions regarding what I consider the second great age of Robberbaron Philanthropy.

    If there's any kind of cosmic justice, we won't make it off this rock until we get our act together as a species.

    I tend to agree. The optimist in me hopes for better, but experience makes that hope seem naive.
