Perhaps you're already aware—we were shocked and intrigued to hear it—that Charles Lindbergh spent his later years in a lab looking for everlasting life. Friedman’s obviously fascinating book The Immortalists: Charles Lindbergh, Dr. Alexis Carrel, and Their Daring Quest to Live Forever explains not only this, but also the possible reasons why Lindbergh embarked on this doomed quest (he was only able to keep extracted organs alive for weeks). Bring your questions about the God complex.
