Cyronics is the practice of using subfreezing temperatures to preserve the bodies of those who have died of an incurable disease with the
intent of restoring good health following sufficient advances in medical technology.
I came here to say this :)
I'd also lean in favor of Cryonics as coming out better on the tradeoff of accessibility vs correctness. (That is, when trading off this much recognizability for that much technical correctness, I don't think it's worth it.) But although Aaron and I both share this view, I don't think of myself as speaking from authority, just expressing my opinion.
Should this tag be labelled "cryonics"? "Biostasis" is more inclusive, but I don't see what variants of it are relevant to the Forum aside from cryonics. (I know almost nothing about this area, and could be wrong.)
I have now changed the name of the tag to "Cryonics" and added a brief description.
