Zoltan Istvan is a transhumanist known for quite a few interesting things. As a journalist for the National Geographic Channel, he invented a new kind of sport: volcano surfing. In the US election campaign of 2016, the Columbia University graduate ran for president and was the top candidate for the Transhumanist Party he founded to raise public awareness about transhumanism. Now that humankind is threatened by a virus, this international movement is becoming particularly interesting. On 25 September Istvan will be a speaker at the Futurological Congress organised by Eurac Research’s Center for Advanced Studies and Festival Transart. Read on to discover the journey of a man who promotes nothing less than human immortality.
