Clearly, NASA is capable of achieving the impossible. It sent Neil Armstrong to the moon, created the Hubble telescope and has even sent Pioneer 10 all the way to Jupiter. Despite all the agency's resources and the ingenuity of its members, surely finding the fountain of youth is beyond its grasp.
In a sense, however, the agency has done just that. It hasn't combed the earth in search of the legendary waters like Ponce de LeÃ³n, but it has developed a drink that can peel years off your visage.
The drink, known as AS10, wasn't actually developed for its age-defying effect. There's simply a need for a way to reduce exposure to solar radiation for astronauts in space. In AS10's initial tests here on earth, scientists discovered a surprising side effect and determined its use reduces wrinkles by approximately 17 percent and UV spots by about 30 percent.
Unfortunately, it will be a while until (and if) AS10 becomes available to the general public. Far more testing is necessary to determine the long-term effects. If AS10 ever makes it to a pharmacy near you, however, Botox injections may become a thing of the past and NASA can add to its greatest achievements.
