How long is the human body designed to live?

The analysis of dynamics of the body mass in human population indicates extremums, which correspond to mean (70–75 years), the commonly accepted maximum (100–110 years) and maximum known (140–160 years) lifespan.

What is the newest human race?

The researchers realized that they had evidence of an entirely new human species. They named this new species Homo luzonensis based on the island of Luzon where the bones were found.

What came before dinosaurs?

The age immediately prior to the dinosaurs was called the Permian. Although there were amphibious reptiles, early versions of the dinosaurs, the dominant life form was the trilobite, visually somewhere between a wood louse and an armadillo. In their heyday there were 15,000 kinds of trilobite.
