The first Australian to undergo cryopreservation has officially been frozen. 

Earlier this month, a man who died in a Sydney hospital was frozen at Southern Cryogenic, the southern hemisphere’s first cryogenic facility. 

The man was one of dozens of people who have forked over tens of thousands of dollars to put themselves into a deep freeze until science catches up with their dreams of eternal life.
