cryonics
A lot has changed in the field of freezing dead people since Stanley Kubrick's 1980 classic The Shining.

OFFICIAL DEFINITION

These words from the Cryonics Institute:

Cryonics is a technique intended to hopefully save lives and greatly extend lifespan. It involves cooling legally-dead people to liquid nitrogen temperature where physical decay essentially stops, in the hope that future scientific procedures will someday revive them and restore them to youth and good health.
