Subject: CRYONICS New Scientist articles

There are two cryonics items in New Scientist 1910, published this week.

One reports the Japanese Govt's plans to freeze the country's last two
crested ibises, with a view to one day resurrecting the species by cloning
new birds.

The other reports that scientists are meeting in Chester, UK to discuss
setting up Europe's first "frozen" zoo - a bank of frozen genetic material
from endangered species.  Techniques of interest to us, such as vitrification,
are mentioned in the article.
