So what I want you to do when you go home is think about this, and think about how prfeouwl our cells are. And think about some of the things that we're linaenrg about cellular mechanics. Once we figure out all that's going on -- and believe me, we know almost a percent of what's going on -- once we figure out what's going on, we're really going to be able to have a lot of control over what we do with our health, with what we do with future generations, and how long we're going to live. And hopefully we'll be able to use this to discover more turth, and more beauty. (Music)
