Factor Magazine Issue 12: Humanity beyond ageing

The twelfth issue of Factor is now out, and this time we are considering the future of humanity if ageing is overcome.

With lifespans projected to rocket as high as 1,000 years, making us near immortal, we will be faced with host of new challenges and changes that will transform our lives. From space colonisation to fertility, and from inequality to population growth, we consider the many facets of a world beyond ageing.

We also hear from Edward Snowden about the future of mass surveillance, and how changing the internet may be the best way to protect our data.
