Read Special Report Interstellar Travel and Post-Humans by our Martin Rees.
The Earth has existed for forty-five million centuries — and even longer timespans lie ahead before the Sun dies. But even in this vast time-perspective, the present century is special. It is the first when humans may establish communities away from the Earth. And it is the first when they may create electronic intelligences that surpass their own all-round capabilities, and also achieve the ability to bio-engineer their progeny. In this report, some aspects of this transition are discussed, along with some even more speculative comments about “post-human” evolution, and the future of the universe itself.

Read Special Report What is Human Enhancement, and why is it good for our society? by our Guido Putignano.
According to a study made by the European Parliament, the umbrella term “Human Enhancement” refers to a wide range of existing, emerging, and visionary technologies, including pharmaceutical products: neuro implants that provide replacement sight or other artificial senses, drugs that boost brain power, human germline engineering and existing reproductive technologies, nutritional supplements, new brain stimulation technologies to alleviate suffering and control mood, gene doping in sports, cosmetic surgery, growth hormones for children of short stature, anti-aging medication, and highly sophisticated prosthetic applications that may provide specialized sensory input or mechanical output.
All these technologies signal the blurring of boundaries between restorative therapy and interventions that aim to bring about improvements extending beyond such therapy.
