Natasha Vita-More on Transhumanism in Space

September 24, 2012| Space|1 Minutes|By AAG

Natasha Vita-More joins us to talk about the future of mankind in space, and how emerging trends in the extropian & transhumanist movements may lead to bio-engineered human enhancements that will ultimately change humanity as we begin to venture in the stars. How will we adapt to the harsh & unforgiving environment of life in space, and how will it change us?
Transhumanism is an international intellectual and cultural movement supporting the use of new sciences and technologies to enhance human physical and cognitive abilities and ameliorate what it regards as undesirable and unnecessary aspects of the human condition, such as disease and aging.

Vita-More is the president of the Extropy Institute, the founder of “Transhumanist Arts & Culture” online, and a member of The Association of Professional Futurists. She is well-recognized as a community leader and true pioneer in the Extropian & Transhumanist movements, along with her husband, Dr. Max More.
