On This Day



On This Day… The First Man To Be Frozen In Time!

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Jun 2019

It was on this day, 12th January, back in 1967, when the first person in history was cryonically preserved. Dr James Bedford was a University of California psychology professor who wrote several books on occupational counselling.

Sadly, James Bedford died as a result of cancer, and on the same day his body was preserved at a low temperature of −196°C. Cryonics is used on people who cannot be sustained by contemporary medicine. The hope is that resuscitation and restoration to full health may be possible in the far future for the hundreds of people that have been preserved this way.

Currently, Cryopreservation of humans is not reversible with present technology, but hopefully someday cryopreserved people will be able to be revived. James Bedford chose to be preserved by freezing and even left money for a steel capsule and liquid nitrogen in his will.

We promote history by...

offering free articles and videos, providing free history experiences for children in schools and on weekends. Next year we will be visiting hospitals and providing unforgettable experiences to children who really need it and give them a chance to forget their condition, their treatment and their reality. Please join others who support our free projects by giving a small donation. We can only continue our great work with your help.
