No one knows, as it will take that length of time to do the experiment. All 
we can do is to decide whether taking it will do any harm, and if not 
whether it will be worth the expense. If so, then we will know eventually 
whether we live to 120 years or so. If we wait for the experiment to be 
done, then we will be dead by the time the result is obtained therefore 
it will be meaningless to us.
