Response to Looking at "The Alcor Team" on their website


Just trying to understand the process.

So, after the member's body is processed (fluids drained and replaced) and brought down to the optimum temperature (I'm sure its quite complex, but from a layman's view that's what seems to be involved) the frozen body is placed in a sleeping bag and placed in the dewar?

The dewar is just a sealed, protected, insulated container designed to maintain the low temperature?

Are there any other requirements to the future storage beyond maintaining the safety of the dewar and the correct low temperature required? Additional gas is periodically added?

About how long does the body preparation take, and how many people are involved in the process?
