Hello all,
There will be a will always be a role for cyropreservation.  It doesn't even 
matter who perfects it.  We need and will need in the future a way of long 
term organ and tissue storage.  Assuming that the only role is to freeze 
moribund beings for later cure, is really limited thinking.  Eventually 
rescue squads will use cryopreservation to rescue trauma patients.  In the 
new Emergency Department, nanomachines will repair the trauma damage.  The 
only way nanotechnology can effectively work is on a stable platform.  This 
means near 0 Kelvin.  The 2 fields (nanotechnology and cyronics) are 
intimately related.
