Cryonicists would be much more wise to make their own local arrangements, for friends, their personal physician and a local mortician to place them in the ice bath, administer and circulate the meds, and ship them on dry ice, than to pay those whiz-kids from SA, (
I’ve yet to figure out why SA has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on purchasing and modifying two vehicles that won’t ever benefit most of their clients. Unless you live very close to that facility, or have adequate warning of your impending legal death, they are going to fly to your location and pick you up in a rented moving van. Like almost everything else at SA, the vehicles just don’t make sense, to me; they’re just a distraction from the fact that nothing is really being accomplished.Have an experienced mortician, or someone else with experience shipping human bodies, collaborate with some of the scientific experts in cryonics, to establish a sound protocol that complies with airline and DOT regulations, for shipping cryonics patients from the location of their legal death and (hopefully successful) washout procedure, to where they will be vitrified and stored. It doesn’t make sense to have a vitrification facility without a storage facility, (a direction it sometimes seems SA is heading); too many things can happen during transport, and from my brief exploration of transporting at cryogenic temperatures, it seems there are quite a lot of regulations to overcome.
