Arthur C. Clarke's "The Secret": How to live 3 times longer?

Quite a readable story.

Story summary.
Henry Cooper is a journalist visiting lunar colonies on a request from UN Space Administration - probably his report will be used to defend next year's budget for the agency.

Henry finds something fishy during his stay. Someone is hiding something, but what & who? He talks of his dilemma with a high ranking local cop - Chandra Coomarswamy. He also tells Chandra it's Medical Research that is trying to keep something from him.

Couple of weeks later, Chandra fixes up his meeting with Dr Hastings, boss of Medical Research. When he learns the secret, Henry is also in a dilemma - how & whether to break the news to earth?
