  • 2. The most important application of Nanotechnology is CRYONICS. “Cryo” is a Greek root meaning "cold"  Cryonics is the science and practice of preserving the recently deceased in hope of future revival Cryonics is practice of preserving human body in extremely cold temperatures. The person can be "Frozen” then revived in the future when a cure has been discovered  Using COLD to PRESERVE the life of a person no longer able to be supported by ordinary medicine - (Cryopreservation)  Goal: REANIMATION- Carry person forward for however long until preservation process can be reversed and the patient restored to full health.
  • 3. patients are placed inindividual aluminum containersEach container is designed to holdfour whole body patients andcontainers are immersed in liquidnitrogen at -196 degrees Celsius.
  • 4. The oldest patient currently still being held incryopreservation is Dr.James Bedford , who was dead in1967. His body is reportedly still in good condition at Alcor Life Extension Foundation
  • 5. Why only nanotechnology is used incryonics?  Cryonics basically deals with cells, these cells are in the order of nanometers.  A nanometre is equivalent to the width of six bonded carbon items. A DNA molecule is 2.5nm wide.  At present there is no other technology which deals with such minute cells.  In theory, a nano cell ‘ sentinel’ could make our body immune to any present or future infectious disease. .  If advanced nanotechnology is available for patient recovery, then fracturing probably causes little information loss.
  • 6. FUTURE ENHANCEMENTSWith the knowledge of cryonics, cryonists arepreserving the brains of humans. We now that each person alive today was oncea single cell and a complete human being canbe grown in the natural state. Thus they believe that genetic programming of asingle cell on the surface of that brain begins aprocess of growth and development that perhapsappends to the brain a complete young adultbody.
