Cryonics Institute (CI)
Sunday, June 24, 2007 3 PM - 7 PM
24355 Sorrentino Court
Clinton Township, Michigan 48035-3239
The Cryonics Institute Open House is entirely devoted to introducing friends, family,
acquaintances and other interested persons to the concepts and facilities of cryonics.
Cryonics Institute Members are encouraged to bring anyone in their lives who could
have a personal interest in cryonics or another reason to learn more about cryonics, such
as being close to a Cryonics Institute Member and wanting to learn more about the
motives and fate of that Member.
Unlike the Annual General Meeting, typically held in late September, the Open
House is not a business meeting and is more focused on being a guest event. CI
Members are invited to bring guests and others are invited to be a guest
and/or to bring a guest. Robert Ettinger, the founder of cryonics and of the
Cryonics Institute, will be attending, so those wishing to meet him will be
able to do so.

The lecture will give an overview of the goals, methods and feasibility
of cryonics -- as an introduction to the subject. The lecture will also
provide an overview of cryonics organizations and cryonics technology in
the world today, including probable developments in the near future -- information
