The Transhumanist Manifesto and The Transhuman Statement are a series of revised declarations about transhumanism by Natasha Vita-More.

The original document was written in 1992 and called "The Transhuman Statement" and was influenced by early advances in augmented and virtual reality in the media arts and the Transhumanist Art Statement[1] was written in 1993. The first version of the "Transhumans Statement" (1982) was famously[citation needed] placed aboard the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft, inspiring Natasha to start the TransCentury UPdate TV show. Later versions were renamed "The Transhumanist Manifesto"[2] in 1998[3], 2008 and 2020.[4]

It influences many transhumanist declarations and other manifestos that followed.

An updated version of The Transhumanist Manifesto is scheduled to be sent to the lunar surface by Future Grind on the Astrobotic's Peregrine lander in 2021.[5]
