Cryonics - Frequently Asked Questions Does Cryonics Work

What happens if the power goes out?

If the power goes out at the cryonics facility there are protections to prevent you from unfreezing. The liquid nitrogen in the cryonics container (known as a Dewar) is not powered by electricity. The patients remain at -196 degrees centigrade as a natural function of liquid nitrogen.

Why wait till people are dead to cryopreserve them?

Regulatory agencies and ethical considerations require that an individual be pronounced legally, although not biologically “dead” before cryonics protocols take place. This does not mean that the brain or even the “soul” is irretrievably damaged, as evidenced by hundreds of medically documented cases.
