Facts About Cryonics You Need To Know

There are 5 cryonics facilities in 4 different continents

  • The European Biostasis Foundation’s (EBF) facility, in collaboration with Tomorrow Biostasis in Rafz, Switzerland, Europe.
  • Alcor’s facility , which was originally in California, and is now based in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.
  • The Cryonics Institute’s facility, the one with the highest number of people stored, is located in Clinton Town, Michigan, USA.
  • In Jinan, Shandong, eastern China, there is the The Shandong Yinfeng Life Science Research Institute.
  • And finally there is the Southern Cryonics’ facility, located close to Sydney, Australia.

The “father of cryonics” has been stored for only 10 years

There are more than 250 pets currently cryopreserved

The long term cryogenics storage dewars is basically a big thermos

Cryopreserving a person alive would be homicide

In 2019 Netflix released a documentary about the youngest cryopreserved patient ever

Conclusion

  • First of all, all biostasis facilities have a limited space. Obviously, this space can be expanded but it takes time to build new facilities.
  • Additionally, there is a limited number of standby teams. If, again, a billion people would subscribe tomorrow, biostasis providers would need to train and equip an enormous amount of people. If there weren’t enough standby teams, providers wouldn’t be able to guarantee a fast response and a high quality cryopreservation. Having teams ready is a very important part of the process.
  • Finally, it wouldn’t be that easy to buy or produce rapidly enough the amount of liquid nitrogen needed for a billion people.
