One of the most fantastical ideas to spring from the minds of humans has become a common trope — time travel. As a genre, time travel dates back around 100 to 150 years ago, with books like The Time Machine, A Connecticut Yankee in King Authur's Court, and even A Christmas Carol.

The leading cause of death is being alive. Our bodies are full of zombies — senescent cells that refuse to die when they should. As these cells accumulate, they wreak havoc on healthy cells around them — and making us age in the process. Kurzgesagt looks at how scientists are looking at reversing aging as a means to keep us healthier for longer.
