What is Cryogenics?

The art and science of achieving extremely low temperatures, from -150°C (-283°F) to almost absolute zero -273,15°C (-459°F). Cryogenics is an enabling technology that contributes much to our lives on earth and in space.

Cryogenics is NOT body freezing. The cryogenic society of america does not endorse cryonics, the freezing of humans for future reanimation. The only connection between cryogenics and cryonics is theuse of liquid nitrogen, a cryogen
