Only a small number of people are working as Cryonics Technicians today, but that doesn’t make the job any less creepy. The practice of Cryonics involves attempting to preserve people who are legally dead at very low temperatures, so that they can be revived in the future when medical advancements are able to restore life. Cryonics Technicians typically preserve just the head of a patient, since the goal is to protect the brain for eventual resuscitation. Cryonics is controversial among scientists, but no matter what your opinion is of the practice, there’s no denying that any profession which involves removing the heads of people who’ve just died and preserving them at -200 degrees is a little bit scary.
