Freezing Time: Plans for a Giant Cryonics Facility Are Heating Up

Timeship will be a six-acre, $180 million “Noah’s Ark” for 10,000 people and plants and animals, as well as stem cells of near-extinct species and human organs for transplant.

The project’s architect, Stephen Valentine, was commissioned by life-extension groups, including the Stasis Foundation. He hopes to break ground by 2002, with systems for energy self-reliance in a secure facility located possibly in the American Southwest or Florida.

Plans also call for a sort of “cryoworld” with a hotel, conference center, hospital and hospice for those “traveling” to the future.
