Immortality is something that every scientist wants to turn into a reality. However; it is a long way to go before we could become immortal. This Russian firm is trying to make that happen, sort of.
KrioRus, a company from Russia, is putting human cadavers and brains inside chambers filled with liquid nitrogen to freeze them, saving them from being deteriorated. The temperature of the chambers is maintained at -196 Celsius degree. The company hopes that one day, technology will evolve to the point that we can bring dead bodies back to life.
While KrioRus is not the first company that offers such a service, it is the first country besides the United States to do so.
At the moment, there have been more than 70 patients who have signed up for KrioRus’ service. If you wonder about the price of the service, a person would have to pay $36,000 or Rs 25.50 lakhs to have their bodies frozen. If a person only wants to store their brain, the price would be $15,000 or Rs 10 lakhs. But these prices are for Russians only. Therefore, it might be possible that non-Russians might have to pay higher prices.
However, there is little to no data to support that the cryonics would work like how we want. In fact, Evgeny Alexandrov from the Pseudoscience Commission, the Russian Academy of Science, calls this service of KrioRus a commercial undertaking without any scientific basis. In an interview with the Izvestia newspaper, he said:
KrioRus’ director, Valeriya Udalove, use the service for her dog back in 2008 when it died, hoping that technology would revive it. She said:
She continued saying that the growing number of people signing up for the service is proving its potential.
