Cryogenics

Scientists have been studying frogs in hopes that they can provide the answers necessary to allow doctors to freeze human organs for transplant, or even further, cryogenically freeze living people to awaken them at a later date.
 
The moral and philosophical questions of cryogenic stasis for humans are vast, and few are better to speculate about them than Lois McMaster Bujold, author of the novel Cryoburn, which chronicles how these questions are addressed in an otherworldly futuristic society.  Bujold is one of the most acclaimed writers in the science fiction field, having won the prestigious Hugo Award for best novel four times.  She has studied the current day state of the art of cryogenic freezing, and is aware of the recent direction of research to use cryobiology to extend the life of transplant organs.
 
You can meet Hugo Award winning writer Lois McMaster Bujold at the Powell's located at 3415 SW Cedar Hills Blvd tonight from 7:00 - 9:00 pm !
