Russian Scientists Will Blast Frozen Dead People and Pets Into Space Soon

This is ideal for those who want an ‘out-of-this-world’ send-off!

If you’re that kind of person who wants to have a special send-off when you die, you might want to check out what Russia has to offer. Apparently, a firm in the country is planning to launch frozen corpses (both of people and pets) as well as DNA samples into space.

In a recent news circulating online, multi-million company KrioRus has confirmed that they will soon be blasting cryogenically-preserved dead people into the atmosphere. Sounds like an absurd idea, you say? Well, read on and learn more!

KrioRus already has 54 people and 21 animals in their laboratories.

Moreover, an additional 200 more have signed up for their services which is to “preserve dead bodies immediately after someone passes, before launching them into the atmosphere,” a Mirror report tells us.

So how much exactly does one have to pay to avail of the out-of-this-world (no pun intended) service? Well, it’s obviously pretty expensive.

The service cost is estimated at about US$ 316,200 or more.

Customers who have paid for the service will wear a wrist device which will later alert KrioRus once they die.

Meanwhile, the company mentioned that their ‘space plans’ are done in collaboration with Space Technologies, a new science and tech consortium.

Since 2015, the firm says they have already frozen “bodies and brains of 54 people, eight dogs, nine cats, three birds, and incredibly, even one pet chinchilla,” said Mirror.

Now they’re setting their sights into launching these corpses into space, describing space as a “land of opportunity.”

KrioRus is quick to clarify, however, that the frozen bodies will not “just be hanging around in orbit” but will be kept in secure pods.

As Yulia Arkhipova, General Director of Space Technologies, has confirmed:

“Satellites with cryo-capsules will be launched into orbit by Russian rockets.”

Just in case you’re unfamiliar with cryogenics, it is the process of freezing and can only “legally happen when someone has just been declared dead,” the news website mentioned.

Freezing must immediately be done once a customer dies to prevent brain damage. Facilities are only available in Russia and the United States as of the moment.

World’s Smallest Gun Fires Up Collectors With Its Awesome Features

The Miniature Revolver C1ST manufactured by SwissMiniGun is the world’s smallest gun and is loaded with teeny-weeny bullets.

A miniature is defined as a small-scale replica of a much larger object. People have always been fascinated by all kinds of miniatures. We've seen small versions of furniture, stamps, and even paintings. But it's something else when you see the world's smallest gun.

The Guinness World Records has awarded the Miniature Revolver C1ST with the title, "The World's Smallest Gun." Manufactured by the Switzerland-based company SwissMiniGun, the revolver is a miniature in the true sense of the world. This means that it functions precisely like a real gun.

It was modeled after the .357 Colt Python.

Huge Black Hole Discovered Near Heart of Milky Way Could Tell Us How Our Galaxy Began

A team of Japanese scientists spotted a new black hole that’s about 100,000 times the size of our sun.

If you’re a science nerd, you probably know that many believe that supermassive black holes are in the middle of every galaxy and that new stars form and galaxies grow because of them. Smaller black holes, on the other hand, are there because of a collapsed star.

Recently, however, a team of scientists from Japan’s Keio University are claiming that they have found a new kind of black hole that looks like something in between the two known sizes – and that it possibly holds the secret to our galaxy’s origin.

Japanese scientists have discovered a huge black hole near the heart of the Milky Way.

Is It Possible To Build A Road That Goes Around The World?

While visiting other countries or other continents is usually done by land or air, a video explores if it is actually possible to see the world by land.

Traveling from country to country or continent to continent has always been by sea or by air. But did you know that there are already roads connecting some continents together?

Imagine going on a road trip around the world. This is not yet possible at the moment but what if there is a way to see countries in Europe then you could hop on straight to Asia? Or Africa? It might be an epic way to see the world and it might be a more thrifty option to go to your dream destinations.

Land travel has greatly improved in the past century. With innovations in engineering and technology, experts have made it possible to connect islands through underwater passages or mountains through bridges....
