“Cryonics is my only hope that I will ever meet my grandmother again.” A new company in Russia, KrioRus, will freeze the brain ($10,000) and body ($30,000 for both) of the dead in the hopes that advancing technology will bring them resurrection some time in the future. KrioRus is the first cryonics company outside the US, reports BioEdge. So much for seeing grandma in heaven.
Cryonics Institute (“Your last best chance for life…”) provides an analysis of operating cryonics companies here. You can read more about cryonics at the American Cryonics Society (“Is there light at the end of the tunnel?”) website.
