Cryogenics http://nhpr.org en Frozen In Time: 7 Celebrities Who Are Taking Steps to Live Forever http://nhpr.org/post/frozen-time-7-celebrities-who-are-taking-steps-live-forever <p>When we <a href="http://nhpr.org/post/cold-hard-truth-about-freezing-yourself">spoke with Josh Dean</a>, author of the long form article, “Inside the Immortality Business,” he noted that you have to have both a lot of money and a pretty large ego to seriously consider cryonics as a substitute for any end of life plans. Since it is only legal to freeze someone after they have been declared medically deceased, there are some pretty tricky logistics involved in being cryogenically frozen. Aside from having your estate settled and making sure there is a team waiting at your death bed to put you on ice as soon as possible, people who choose to be frozen also have to make sure their accounts have been paid in full – or risk having their bodies sit around until the bank transfers go through. Despite all this, there are still plenty of people who are willing to bet hundreds of thousands of dollars that someday science will have progressed far enough to bring them back from the dead. Among this eccentric bunch are some well known celebrities.</p><p> Mon, 08 Jul 2013 19:17:13 +0000 Molly Donahue 30893 at http://nhpr.org Frozen In Time: 7 Celebrities Who Are Taking Steps to Live Forever Frozen Grandbabies http://nhpr.org/post/frozen-grandbabies <p>The growing trend in parents wanting to be grandparents funding the freezing of their future grandchildren.</p> Wed, 30 May 2012 13:57:38 +0000 Virginia Prescott 5799 at http://nhpr.org Frozen Grandbabies
