Episode Summary

EDIT
Freeze Me
AIRED:
Some dearly departed have had their bodies put into a deep freeze, hoping one day medicine will have a cure for what ailed them. Critics consider the use of cryonics to bring back the dead a fool-hearty idea. It's an unproven science that faces many obstacles to success, especially in the formation of ice crystals that damage the body's cells.

On the more practical side, scientists are making real progress in preserving individual organs for later transplantation into sick individuals.moreless
