In a major scientific breakthrough, scientists defrost and revive ancient worms that were frozen deep in the Siberian permafrost. The 42,000-year-old critters are now alive, eating, and considered the oldest living creatures in the planet.
News on the potential of treatment after cryogenics have popped up after a teenager who recently passed away due to cancer signed up to be the one of the very first to undergo cryogenic freezing. However, other scientists have started exploring the issue of just how plausible it is to treat patients after they have been clinically frozen.
Scientists have found that cryogenic science may be the hope to further improve renewable energy. Cryogenics is a study of reducing the temperatures of biological parts and bodies and reviving them again when needed. An unusual source of energy, it may be a new addition to the short list of renewable sources of energy the world could use in the future.
A young teenage girl was reportedly cryogenically frozen after she died from cancer on October 17. She filed a court case that lobbies for her body's preservation after death, a topic which is still speculative and controversial.
