What if you could combat aging and discover the full potential of the human body? Global movie star Chris Hemsworth (“Extraction,” “Thor,” “The Avengers”) explores this revolutionary idea in the new National Geographic original series “Limitless with Chris Hemsworth” created by Darren Aronofsky and hailing from his production company Protozoa and Jane Root’s Nutopia.
New scientific research is shattering conventional wisdom about the human body and offering fascinating insights into how we can all unlock our body’s superpowers to fight illness, perform better and even reverse the aging process. This science is put to the test by Hemsworth, who, despite being in peak superhero condition, is on a personal mission to learn how to extend our health, strength and intellect further into our later years.
Undergoing a series of epic trials and extraorinary challenges in order to understand the limits of the human body, he’ll learn firsthand how we can live better for longer by discovering ways to regenerate damage, maximize strength, build resilience, supercharge memory, and confront mortality.
The Astroskin Vital Signs Monitoring Platform, an advanced smart clothing, is used in the first episode of the series titled Stress-Proof.
Ever since his teenage years, stress has been part of Chris’ life, and he wants to learn how to deal with it better. In this episode of the series, Chris Hemsworth will learn powerful physical and psychological techniques that can be used to control the stress in our lives and combat the risk it poses to long-term health.
The actor takes on the challenge to stay calm during a terrifying walk along a crane that’s projecting out from the roof of a skyscraper. We follow him practicing his walk in VR. Chris is supported during his training by Dr. Modupe Akinola who interprets the actor's physiological response measured with the Astroskin.
During the episode, we also follow Chris Hemsworth wearing the Astroskin during the chilling walk on the crane at the top of a 900-foot-tall skyscraper.
Limitless with Chris Hemsworth will be streaming on November 16 on Disney+.
