Ahem, sorry. I lied!
Just couldn’t resist continuing with another ‘what if’ scenario based around cryogenics.
In my first story, a group of convicts were sent to the Cryonics Facility for indefinite storage.
More centuries have passed and The United Worlds is a blissfully peaceful place. And, so, when the miners in the Kuiper Belt mount a bloody revolution, the President and her Security Chief have no idea how to deal with it.
Then they hit on a bright idea. Why not talk to people who know all about bloody violence? Why not resurrect the criminals from their frozen sleep?
As I’m sure you have already predicted, this bright idea turns out to be not-so-bright, after all.
I wrote this story a couple of days ago, but was busy yesterday with a trip to the Amazon Academy event in London. It was a day full of interesting insights into how Amazon plans to rule the world, from a pick-and-mix store of technical applications, to the local delivery of fresh food. If cryonics does become widespread in the future, I’m sure Amazon will become involved in that too… unless, of course, they already are.
