In the desert climate of Scottsdale, Arizona, is located 147 brains and bodies, all frozen in liquid nitrogen in order to one day be thawed.This is not science fiction - some not even do any science, however, thousands of people around the world give their trust, life and wealth of promises of Cryonics - the practice of preserving the body with antifreeze shortly after death, I hope that medicine will in future be able to recover from the dead.
“About half a century, if someone stops breathing and his heart stops beating, you check and said he is dead” – declares Max Mohr, director of the Foundation Alcor for prolonging life in Scottsdale.
“Our position is that when you call someone dead is an arbitrary line. In fact, they need rescuing. This “rescue” begins at the moment when the doctor declares the patient dead. Alcor team begins to prepare an ice bath and 16 variations drugs and anti-freeze until the temperature of the patient declines almost to freezing.
“The critical thing is how quickly we get to someone and how fast will begin the cooling process” – said Mor. In order to ensure that Alcor stations are equipped with teams in the UK, Canada and Germany and offer members the membership fee of $ 10,000 legal to die in Scottsdale, where the record for the cooling of the patient and preparing for surgery is 35 minutes.

Then, agreed surgeon removes the patient's head if he had chosen the option "Neuro" by Alcor, as euphemistically called, with the hope to raise a new body with the DNA of the person when the time comes to icing.This is also much less expensive way for the price of $ 80,000, less than half the cost of preserving the body. "This requires 200,000 dollars, and not so much as it sounds, since most people pay with life insurance" - declares Mor.
Who does this?
When Mohr arrived in the US in 1986. UK to train at Alcor, which was operated by volunteers, it is registered as a 67th member. Since then, the company employs a permanent staff of 8 employees, has increased its membership to more than 1,000 and nearly doubled the size of its Unit for the care of patients. The number of "patients" is constantly growing.
Maybe you want to succeed?
By law, Alcor has no obligation to give life after death. In fact, after legally declare death, the government considered "patients" by Alcor only as bodies donated to science.
However, Cryonics should face the laws of science. Experts have different opinions. Those who support point to successful examples of in-vitro fertilization of frozen embryos and animal experiments, and the rest say lack of evidence and lack of knowledge of the human brain.
However, according to Mohr, the company does not sell hope, but the chance of life after death, and more and more people are reported to be frozen and to have this opportunity. So the question is, would you have done it you? (source)
