Alcor Life Extension Foundation is all about the future. The foundation, a provider of cryonics services, is the largest operation of its kind worldwide. Alcor has enlisted more than 840 members and has frozen some 80 people and animals in the first step to resuscitating them someday. Patients are frozen or "suspended" using liquid nitrogen -- which typically costs more than $150,000 for the process -- and stored in containers called "Dewars." Neurosuspensions (head-only) are $80,000 and whole-body suspensions are $150,000. Cryonic suspensions are usually funded through life insurance policies but some are paid for outright. Baseball great Ted Williams became the foundation's 50th suspension in July 2002.
