THE process of achieving immortality will begin by 2029 when nano-bots are created that can swim through our bodies to fight disease, a high ranking Google executive has said.

Google’s Director of Engineer Ray Kurzweil believes that we are little more than a decade away from taking major steps towards immortality.

The tech specialist, who has long supported the notion of immortality, says that medical advancements and improved technology in the coming 12 years will see humans being given the option to live forever.
