Introducing the "interplanetary doctor robot" that will work for NASA

 Futurist Raymond Kurzweil believes that humans can live to be 1,000 years old thanks to a new discovery.

According to Kurzweil's new book, nanorobots could be the key to stopping human aging and helping us live thousands of years. This is especially shocking information because humans have only witnessed a maximum lifespan of just over 100 years old, let alone 200 years old.

Can people in the future live for many centuries?

Anti-aging continues to be a common research focus of famous scientists. While many people seek to slow the body's degenerative processes and simply prolong their lives, others like Kurzweil seem to have larger goals.

Kurzweil writes extensively about the use of nanotechnology in this pursuit both in his new book The Singularity is Nearer and in an essay posted on Wired. Both discuss combining biotechnology with artificial intelligence (AI) to help us overcome the short human lifespan by minimizing human aging as much as possible.

See, one of the biggest problems with aging is that our bodies and cells begin to accumulate errors as more cells reproduce over and over again. Many anti-aging therapies seek to minimize these errors, allowing the body to repair itself more quickly, slowing down the overall aging process.

Nanorobots can become powerful weapons to help fight aging in humans.

For Kurzweil, the only solution here is to "cure yourself of aging." It's definitely a very popular target. Kurzweil himself admits that his predictions sound absurd at the moment, but he believes that advances in medical nanorobots will soon help us cure human aging in all aspects. Each human body may even need several hundred billion nanorobots to repair and strengthen degenerating organs and keep them functioning at their best.

Although this is just one person's vision of the future, it will be interesting to see if this futurist's predictions come true. With what is happening with AI, anything is possible.

"Doctor robot" MIRA is an advanced surgical system supported by micro robots (RAS) that can move within the body, intended to work at the International Space Station (ISS).

Professor Shane Farritor and his colleagues at the Nebraska Innovation Campus (UNL) of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (NIC-USA) and the technology company Virtual Incision developed MIRA with the main goal of serving missions. future interplanetary travel.

These missions will require astronauts to stay in space for a long time, for example, NASA's plans to conquer the Moon and Mars both aim for a few months of stay.

Not to mention, many more ambitious plans for space settlements have been considered by space agencies, private space companies, scientists..., including "vacation" trips to outer space. space or even live for a long time.

This poses many challenges, including the ability to provide medical services, especially complex procedures, such as surgeries that on Earth still require the cooperation of many specialties or coordination. Inter-institutional meetings.

Therefore, the plan to create a robot "interplanetary surgeon" was launched with a $100,000 grant from NASA.

MIRA is a multi-purpose machine. Like other surgical robots, it can still be controlled by on-site doctors, but is more optimal than direct surgery, because MIRA's instruments include RAS that can be inserted through incisions. small, allowing doctors to perform minimally invasive operations, to increase safety in an environment in outer space that does not have many conditions to support medical procedures and complications resolve like on Earth.

Additionally this technology can enable telemedicine. On Earth, this technology has been successfully tested to help doctors perform remote surgery on people stuck in places with medical shortages where operations require more specialist intervention than medical force is available there.

However, MIRA technology has the added benefit of being able to perform operations autonomously, meaning astronauts serving on the Moon and Mars can receive medical care without the need for a doctor. the surgeon was present there.

In August 2021, MIRA helped physicians successfully perform the first remote surgery as part of a clinical study under the Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) Program from the Food Administration and the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The patient was in the navy and had part of his colon removed with a single incision.

Next year, bringing MIRA to work on the ISS will be implemented.
