Minor clear up here. Alcor stores people whole body or head only depending on what they ask for and pay for. We can store at least a dozen heads in the place of a single a single whole body patient which reduces the cost by about half. Of the 18 I helped freeze, about half were heads only and the rest were whole body. Also, it is now possible to cryoprotect brains (heads) with a mix of chemicals which results in a very small amount of ice formation (vitrification). Doing this to a whole body is not currently done for technical reasons. Whether this will make any difference in the long run is to be determined. The point of relavence to this news group is that the space aliens in OT 3 were brought to earth (Tegeeack) biologically suspended by cryonics, and of course, Tom Cruise is a noisy scientologist.
