Today Space, Tomorrow the Brain
>

Memory Loss Prevention and Memory Preservation are amongst the Final Frontiers facing humanity, along with space. While Richard Branson has licensed the spaceship one technology to enable private space flight, others are working on the brain, understanding its structure, and understanding how to extend and preserve its function through software, fMRI, and pharmaceuticals.

Tracking and Monitoring (MemCheck), imaging (fMRI), nutritionals and pharmaceuticals, and even, Memory Storage will be utilized in combination to spot, analyze, and treat impairments; finally, storing away memories in a computer chip. Three of the Four are possible today, though we are just at the baby-steps of what will be a vast revolution, the Fourth - memory storage, has just been announced from a USC and Kentucky research team.

You can help make it all possible by taking our test, purchasing MemCheck, featuring MemCheck on your site or blog - and we will let you know how you can help.




LONDON, England -- William Shatner wants to boldly go where he's only pretended to go so far.

The "Star Trek" star is among more than 7,000 people who have told Richard Branson they would gladly pay him $210,000 (£115,000) for a trip aboard his planned spacecraft, the entrepreneur said Friday.

Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist Dave Navarro has signed up for a ride, and a Hollywood director who was not identified has booked an entire ship.

Trevor Beattie, chairman of the ad agency TBWA -- responsible for campaigns such as the "Hello Boys" Wonderbra campaign with Eva Herzigova -- offered to send a check as soon as the project was launched last month.

In all, more than $1.45 billion (£800 million) has been pledged -- years before the Virgin Galactic spaceship is even built, Branson said.

Branson, 54, is pouring $135 million (£74 million) into his latest commercial experiment, which promises to send the paying public 70 miles above the planet to experience six minutes of weightlessness and see the curvature of the Earth.
