- CI's 106th Patient
July 25th 2011
Robert Ettinger, the founder of the cryonics movement and of the Cryonics Institute, died on Saturday, July 23, at home in Clinton Township, Michigan, and has been cryopreserved at the Institute. The cryonics movement advocates storage at very low temperatures after death in the hope that future technology will permit revival and the cure of aging and disease. Mr. Ettinger wrote The Prospect of Immortality in 1964, a book advocating and explaining the cryonics thesis.
