Dear Cryoneters,


Speaking about research in Russia   it s just been announced today in the 
Russian press that a 35-year old Russian Aluminum tycoon Oleg Deripaska, who 
graduated with honors from the Department of Physics of the Moscow State 
University and is worth US$1,5 billion according to the Forbes magazine, is 
financing a project called by the Russian press  the Elixir of Immortality  with
the Institute of Physical-Chemical Biology of the Moscow State University. He 
just gave the Institute US$ 120,000 for the first six months of the project, 
which is expected to cost US$ 600,000 for the next 5 years. A member of the 
Russian Academy of Science Vladimir Skulachev is personally overseeing the 
project. (http://www.kp.ru/daily/23158/24704/ for those who read Russian) 
Apparently it is a research to stop programmed cell death.


I say, Oleg, if you are worth US$ 1.5 bln you can sure do a lot better than the 
US$ 120,000. Why not start a cryonics research firm.


I guess we have to wait 5 years to see what happens.
