A dead man can be turned on again

In 1967, a British secret agent "frozen" while awaiting the future where his nemesis riser length in the ice to return to threaten the world. That time arrived in 1997. Secret agent was brought back after preserved in ice for 30 years to save the world from destruction.
Maybe you recognize the above scenario is in the movie "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" (1997). The science that inspired the story of the movie really exists. Science is called cryogenics, the science of learning about what happens to materials at very low temperatures. Krionika, which is a technique used to preserve the human body at very low temperatures with the hopes of one day be raised again, this time being developed)
The idea behind krionika is if someone is "dead" due to her illness, she can be "frozen" to then be raised again in the future when medical technology has been able to cure the disease. Someone is preserved in such a way is said to be in a state of suspension krionika.
Stages to undergo suspension krionika:
1. Become a member of a facility krionika and pay membership fees (about $ 400 per year).
2. Declared "legally dead".
3. Emergency response team from the facility come to you, your body is stabilized by supplying oxygen through the blood to your brain in sufficient quantities to maintain minimal function of the brain until the time comes for you to be moved to facilities suspension.
4. Your body will be wrapped in ice and injected heparin (a type of anticoagulant / anti-clotting) to prevent your blood clot on his way to krionika facilities. A group of medical teams waiting for the arrival of your body at the facility.
5. Once you arrive in the cryogenics facility, "freezing" the real start soon. Cryogenics facility can not simply put their patients into a container of liquid nitrogen because it will cause the water contained cells freezes. Krionika team must remove water from the cells of your body first and replace it with a chemical compound called glycerol-based cryoprotectant (such compounds anticoagulant human body).

6. The next step is to enter your body is then placed into a large metal tank containing liquid nitrogen at a temperature of approximately-196oC. Your body is stored with the head down position.

7. Because the costs are very expensive, scientists provide an economical way to preserve your brain only. In the hope that one day technology to find a way to clone your body that are not preserved.
