Abstract: This abstract attempts to explain by comparing the sequence of the human genomes of senior citizen every year after age seventy, we can identify the emergence of new mutations responsible for causing old age diseases like Cancers, Cardiovascular Diseases and Alzheimer. If deleterious mutations are confirmed, early treatments will extend senior’s life beyond one hundred years. If we want to colonize Mars before this decade is over, we must extend human life so that human settlers using Mars as a base could launch unmanned spacecrafts in search of nearest exoplanets in the Milky Way Galaxy before this century is over. Although we age and die, Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid (DNA) neither age nor die; it keeps on passing information from generation to generation. Earliest unicellular life carries a single stranded DNA which grows by asexual reproduction by budding and making its own clones. In multicellular life form double stranded DNA in which homologous recombination takes place during sexual reproduction. The offspring of such union grows old and die. The laws of nature decide that all living creatures of double stranded DNA must die. If we want to defy Mother nature and extend human life span, we must seize the power from Mother nature and use the tools of genetic engineering to cut, paste, copy, and create a race of superior humans. If we want to protect, preserve, and spread human intelligence across the entire Universe, we must make every attempt to extend human life for the deep space travel. To colonize the exoplanets in the Milky Way Galaxy alone, we must travel at least half the speed of light while doubling the human life span.
