Methusalah Mouse Prize, Aubrey de Grey, 60 Minutes

If you missed 60 Minutes on CBS tonight (Sunday) you missed a whopping good show.

The last segment was on Aubrey de Grey and the MPrize (Methusalah Mouse Prize). Seems our cause has hit the mainstream in a huge way. The program 60 Minutes is well respected and watched by tens of millions of people. I couldn't have been more thrilled.

I have supported the M Prize both personally and through my business, as a member, donor and sponsor. We have always linked to the MPrize page from our retail site. And you have always seen the little "bug" to your right which updates the MPrize amount (and you can click on to make a contribution to the prize!)

The icing on the cake for me was one of the other segments on the 60Minutes program was on Burt Rutan - first man to launch a manned vehicle into space twice in two weeeks and winner of the Ansari X Prize for his accomplishment.

How wonderful to have two forward thinking visionaries in the program?

What a great time to be alive. And remember - all we have to do is "long enough to live forever"!
