KrioRus, a Russian company is offering a chance to ‘live forever’. The company offers to store bodies and brains at very low temperatures so there might be a day when scientists figure out a way to revive the person. The company, located near Moscow, is the first cryonics project in Russia.
At the moment, they have 71 patients. “Patient” is the term they use for corpses stored in liquid nitrogen with a hope to revive them someday. The corpses are preserved at -320.8 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cryonics is an idea to revive a person through storing their body especially the brain with the aim that the person will be resurrected with the same thoughts, beliefs, knowledge, and personality.
The head of the Russian Academy of Science’s Pseudoscience Commission, Evgeny Alexandrov shared their thoughts that it is just a way to make money. The science professionals are discouraging the idea of “cryonics.”
“It is an exclusively commercial undertaking that does not have any scientific basis. It is a fantasy speculating on people’s hopes of resurrection from the dead and dreams of eternal life,” Alexandrov said
There are still many people who believe that it is possible to live forever. They are hopeful that we will be able to revive people someday with the help of technology. According to KiroRus reports, hundreds of people are signing up for their service from twenty countries.
According to Metro, it costs 15000 dollars to preserve the brain. However, you need to pay 36000 dollars to preserve the whole body. This payment plan is only for Russians. The prices are quite high for foreigners. An average Russian earns 760 dollars each month.
