My own search for immortality focus not on surviving after death rather than becoming part of this universe by giving my body back to the earth after I die and more importantly by becoming part of the past, as an ancestor for the future generation to progress.Martine Rothblatt My daughter, my wife, our robot, and the quest for immortality The founder of Sirius XM satellite radio, Martine Rothblatt now heads up a drug company that makes life-saving medicines for rare diseases (including one drug that saved her own daughter's life).
