Today I am going to clarify you about Cryonics and its possibilities. Is it a myth? or Real? Many fictional movies like Captain America (MCU) already shown up with cryonics (accidentally cryo-preserved), and also you find Astronauts who are in different other planets in Interstellar movie are also cryo-preserved themselves. With no more lag, lets discuss what is it? , where did it started? and possibilities in real life.
Cryonics is the low-temperature freezing and storage of a human corpse or severed head, with the speculative hope that they may be revived in the future. The body is stored at −196 °C or 77.1 K. Dry Ice and Liquid Nitrogen are used for the method of cryo-preservation.
Alt: Cryonics involves cooling a recently deceased person to liquid nitrogen temperatures in order to keep the body preserved indefinitely.
Japan National Institute of Polar Research says that they have succeeded in reviving the 'Tardigrade' (Water Bear) animal which they had collected in Antartica bringing it back to life after 30 years being frozen.
Where And When did it started?
The concept of cryonics was introduced in 1962 by the Founder of the Cryonics Institute, Robert Ettinger, in his landmark book "The Prospect of Immortality." Later Ettinger Founded Cryonics Institute in 1976 headquarters at Michingan, US. As of 2014, 250 corpses are preserved. Alcor Life Extension Foundation is also founded for Cryonics by Fred and Linda Chamberlain.
Will cryo-preservation a way to immorality?
The answer is yes. It's not a Myth. But today's technology isn't enough to revive those cryo-preserved corpses. The corpses preserved with care. And their is hope, future technology, may it takes years, decades or even centuries but there is a scope for getting revived.
Ok. What will you do if you Get a chance to being Cryo-preserved?
