Immortal Medusa

One of humanity’s greatest aspirations is already a reality for…a medusa!
The Turritopsis Nutricula is able to operate a cell trans-differentiation: in more common terms it is able to transform its old cells into new young cells. In theory the process can be infinite which makes this medusa…biologically immortal. But it can’t do anything against disease or predation so the medusa can still die if it gets a cold during this upcoming winter, for example.
