Laurent Simons aims to make Humans Immortal by replacing body parts with mechanical parts. When humans get old, their organs get wear and tear and damages. If they could be replaced with mechanical parts, humans could be made immortal – he thinks. He said that Quantum Physics is his favourite and first piece of his puzzle.
To Laurent Simons age is not a problem and he didn’t care whether he is the youngest to get a bachelor’s degree. What he is all about is acquiring the knowledge. He want to pursue studies and further research in Quantum Mechanics, which is the first step towards his goal.
