Cryonics is a process of cryopreservation (low-temperature preservation, −196° C) of all or part of living beings,

in the hopes of one day resuscitating them. Current medical knowledge and know-how is not capable of reversing this process. In the United States, it can only be performed on humans for whom a death certificate has been signed, and only if their clinical death is not too advanced. It is forbidden in France.

Cryonics still finds itself within the realm of science-fiction even if certain scientific facts may lead to its validation. It remains a field of clinical experimentation, with only a few hundred participants who pay a small fortune to participate in this program, arguing that they are better off being in the experimental group than the control group!
