Thiel donates $3.5 million to SENS research

Holy smokes: Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal, has donated US$3.5 million to Aubrey de Grey's Methuselah Foundation. In his words, it was pledge "to support scientific research into the alleviation and eventual reversal of the debilities caused by aging."

Congratulations, Aubrey!
