- Alcor Life Extensions Foundation serves as home to over 100 cryogenically frozen bodies.
- Founded in 1972, the organization aims to preserve bodies “with the intent of restoring good health with medical technology in the future.”
- “Cryonics,” their website also said, “is the practice of preserving life by pausing the dying process.”
Located in Scottsdale, Arizona is a place where more than 100 people have been cryogenically frozen, waiting for their chance to be resurrected.
Established in 1972 by Fred and Linda Chamberlain, the Alcor Life Extensions Foundation is an organization that advocates cryonics – the low-temperature freezing of human corpses after legal death . The intention? Well, they’re trying to prevent decay in the hopes of resurrecting the bodies in the future.
As explained in the official Alcor website:
“Cryonics is the practice of preserving life by pausing the dying process using subfreezing temperatures with the intent of restoring good health with medical technology in the future.”
The concept may sound like something straight from a science fiction film but according to Alcor, it’s actually “based on modern science.”
“Life can be stopped and restarted if its basic structures can be preserved,” the site also added. “Vitrification can preserve biological structure very well – much better than freezing. Methods for repairing biological structure at the molecular level can now be foreseen.”
It is, however, an extremely costly process that costs about $200,000, plus ongoing financial support to keep the body in frozen state.
James Bedford, a World War I veteran, is one of the frozen bodies in Alcor.
Alcor currently has 181 patients in their facility, the latest update on the site indicated. Temperatures in the facility are kept at over 100 degrees for at least eight months a year, according to a report.
