Who wants to live forever? (BBC Focus)

In the small town of Comfort, Texas, an audacious ‘Timeship’ is being built to cryogenically freeze thousands of human bodies, in the hope they will be revived by a future civilisation. Could such an idea ever work?

In this six page feature for BBC Focus, I found that despite recent advances in cryogenics and low temperature biology, the central idea behind the Timeship is still fundamentally a crazy one.
