People given chance to ‘come back from the dead’ via freezing for £85k

A company are offering people the chance to ‘come back from the dead’ using cryogenic freezers to store their corpses until science can bring them back to life.

Customers hoping to buy more time can expect a price tag of $150,000 Australian dollars roughly £84,793.

Their bodies will be submerged headfirst in liquid nitrogen and stored in a steel chamber at temperatures around -200C.

According to the Daily Mail, this gives the brain the best chance of survival if the chambers were to leak.

The company is the first of its kind in Australia. The hi-tech facility has set up shop in rural Holbrook, while its headquarters has can be found in Sydney.

The not-for-profit organisation currently has 40 spaces, most of which have been reserved for the founders. However, the project has plans to add 600 more spots.

Cryonics is the low-temperature freezing and storage of human remains, with the speculative hope that resurrection may be possible in the future.

As soon as certain medical advancements are made in the future, participants may be able to be resuscitated, insists the Southern Cryonics website.

However, there are no guarantees or refunds for anyone brave enough to sign up.

Back in the 1970s, the Cryonics Society of California president Robert Nelson closed the facility after running out of money and the nine preserved corpses were left to rot.

The families of those at the facility later filed a lawsuit against Mr Nelson, which they won.
