Out of ordinary: Cryopreservation after death

Cryopreservation after death is catching on, at a price. Cryonics, defined as "the practice of freezing the body of a person who has just died in order to preserve it for possible resuscitation in the future, as when a cure for the disease that caused death has been found" is attracting persons who hope to be reanimated some time in the future. Organizations such as Alcor consider that they use "ultra-cold temperature to preserve human life with the intent of restoring good health when technology becomes available…" The price tag? USD 28 000 to at least 75 000 and perhaps less for customers' brains alone, a practice that is attracting attention in Russia.
