Unfrozen: How Preserving Yourself For The Future Is Now A Reality!by

Cryogenic Stasis in Russia?

Across science fiction and urban legend alike, the concept of being able to freeze yourself and your loved ones in cryogenic stasis so that you may live to see the future has been around for a long time now – it’s been the basis of an urban legend revolving Walt Disney and was the basis for much-loved animated series Futurama. However, thanks to a firm in Russia, preserving yourself or your pets in frozen stasis so that you may live to see what could become of our future could become an option for you!

However, don’t expect to go into one of the tubes alive, like Fry of Futurama fame – as KrioRus, run by founder Danila Medvedev, offers a freezing service to people and animals who wish to have themselves preserved in a vat of liquid nitrogen after they die – in the hope that science will eventually find a way to revive dead cells, and even bodies, in the not-too-distant future. According to The Sun, there are currently around 45 people stored in KrioRus’ facility, along with a legion of household pets whom their owners hope could be brought back into the land of the living once science allows us to. But will science allow us to truly re-animate the dead?

While no one can be too certain, The Sun quotes Medvedev as stating that he believes we will be able to revive the human brain from death by 2050 – based on our current ability to revive certain cells and tissues and that we may well be able to combine such talents together in future.

KrioRus has been operating for almost eleven years and offers full after-death freezing from $36000, however, if this is a bit too expensive, they offer a head-and-brain freezing service at a fraction of the cost ($12000). Therefore, if freezing yourself is at the very foot of your bucket list – but you’re concerned about cost – KrioRus will be more than happy to take on a third of your body for a third of the price.

While this may be a bizarre concept to some, it will be fascinating to see in years to come if the technology does allow voluntary freezers to leap ahead and experience science and technology at a later date – but will it be worth waiting decades in the cold? We will have to ask them once they’re out of stasis!
