What’s the Difference Between Cryonics and Cryogenics?

How Does Cryonics Work?

Cryonics was first mentioned by Robert Ettinger around 5 decades ago. He suggested the idea in a book called “The Prospect of Immortality” in 1964. A few years later, the Cryonics Institute was established. From a small group of dedicated supporters, now there are thousands of people who are hoping on science.

After a person is legally declared dead, a complicated set of protocols will start the freezing process. The main goal is to cool all body tissues so that every procedure slows down only at a molecular level. After pumping out all of the blood, the body is further cooled to prevent tissue damage and preserve organs. The last step is to put the body into a large container of liquid nitrogen until a scientific breakthrough occurs and helps revive them. [2]
