The future of cryonics debate between physicist Michio Kaku and Alcor CEO Max More
December 22, 2013
In response to a question, “What are the practical applications of cryogenics today, and what potential improvements can we expect 20 to 30 years down the line?” Michio Kaku, PhD, replied with a critique.
Max More, PhD, CEO of Alcor Life Extension Foundation, offered this response, noting that cryonics is “affordable by regular people. Ice does not form inside cells and cause them to explode. We also use an advanced cryoprotectant to prevent ice formation. We do not advertise that it’s a way to live forever.”
