Question

Will it ever be possible to revive a cryopreserved human?

Answer

Barry - If you're asking a personal opinion, no. I think freezing whole human bodies at the moment is a matter of personal choice and faith. There's no scientific evidence that we will be able to cryo-preserve a whole human body or a whole human person in a way that would allow them to come back sensibly and live their life out in the future.

Kat - So bad news for Walt Disney in his freezer then! Lorna, have you got any ideas on that one?

Lorna - Yeah. I think I'm in agreement with Barry but perhaps the romantic in me would like to believe that in time, anything is possible with science.
