I haven’t looked at how cryonics have advanced in the past few years, but I hope that its improved a bit… 🙂

Ettinger died on July 23 of poor health in his home in Clinton Township, Mich.

For anyone who has seen the movie "Austin Powers," one of the most memorable scenes was Mike Myers being brought back to life after 30 years of being cryogenically frozen. Many people, especially Robert Ettinger, have wondered if this could actually happen at some point in the future.

Ettinger, also known as the "father of cryonics," died July 23, 2011 at the age of 92. He had spent much of his life advocating the freezing of the dead in hopes of bringing them back to life one day.
