Process to freeze dead body of father of cryonics Robert Ettinger starts
Melbourne, July 26 (ANI): The body of late Robert Ettinger, who is known as the father of the cryonics movement, is currently undergoing a five-day process to cool it for storage at a very low temperature.
According to the Detroit News, Ettinger, who died July 23 at the age of 92, will become the 106th patient at the organisation he founded, the Cryonics Institute, in Clinton Township, Michigan.
Once there, he will join his mother, who was the first cryo-preserved corpse at the institute in 1977, and his first and second wives, who were numbers two and 34 respectively.
The paper said Ettinger did not want a memorial service because he believed he may return.
The five-day process to preserve Ettinger's body began within minutes of his death and involved packing the body on ice, using chemicals to limit freezer damage and slowly cooling it to the temperature of liquid nitrogen.
It quoted his son, David, as saying the body was expected to be ready to be submerged upside down in a liquid nitrogen filled tank by July 28.
"He really has been viewed as the inspirational leader of the cryonics movement, and thousands of people around the world have looked up to him and will be upset that's gone but hopeful that he will be back," News.com.au quoted David as saying. (ANI)
