Subject: European cryonics

Outside UK, it seems european cryonics is not welcome, this is true in 

France, Spain and Germany at least. I don't know about Italy, Belgium and so on.
least for France, it seems there could be a solution using the law on giving 
bodies to the science. If there was a legitimate research center, it could 

Such a center could have, as a main objective, to keep bodies as biological 
archives. For example, if we had keept some corpses from the Spanish flu 

pandemics, we could have a vaccine for it now. The same may be true for some 
illness or newly discovered giant viruses. We don't know today what we will 
need tomorrow, so we must keep a sample of the general population, cryonics is 
the only way to do it.

I think this science and social side of cryonics must be put forward in 
countries with a "cryonics problem".

I hope the work on a first cryostat will start in France near the end of the 
month. Before all the paperwork will be untangled, the comming facility would 
be working with animals only.
