Eternity injection

Anatoli Brouchkov, who is head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, reckons he could be on the way to immortality.

Two years ago he injected himself with Bacillus F, a bacteria discovered in 2009 in the Siberian permafrost.

He claims that the 3.5 million year-old  bacteria has given his health and energy a boost, and hopes its DNA might prevent aging.
