In fact yes, it can. My uncle works for a Massachussetts based company called AbioMed. They build artificial hearts. Currently, the technology will work for around 2 years before failing. My uncle also tells me that the company is working on similar projects for other human organs, so I believe it's only a matter of time before the technology is perfected. The human lifespan could very soon be doubled, or even better! AbioMed's website is below: http://www.abiomed.com/products/heart_replacement.cfm Hope this helped!

Not alone. Science alone can provide a surplus of organ donors, but ethics prevent the use of science from harvesting them. If you'd like to volunteer to donate your organs, it might be arranged, but in general we wait until people die before we harvest hearts and such.

Science already has. It all starts at the simple level called Quantum Physics and ends in the power of our consciousness
