No, really. Robert Ettinger, widely regarded as “the father of cryonics,” passed away on Saturday at the age of 92. Naturally, The Cryonics Institute has frozen his body in liquid nitrogen at minus 321 degrees Fahrenheit.
I’m really hoping the process works and he can be brought to life at some point in the future, because according to this article at Daily Tech, his two wives are frozen there as well.
That’s right: at some point in a future I really hope to live to see, Robert Ettinger is going to be brought back to life and have to choose between his first wife, who was preserved in 1987, and his second wife, who was preserved in 2001.
This just proves we will still need physical currency in the future. For the coin flipping. - Matt
