Cryogenics pioneer speaks out about his first 'patient' | Daily Mail Online: Robert Nelson, 80, has revealed to DailyMail.com what it was like to preserve the first 'patient' of cryogenics in liquid nitrogen in 1967
Nelson, the president of the Cryonics Society of California, he said he believes the man, James Bedford, will come back to life one day
Nelson said he also wants to be frozen when he dies
Cryogenics is the idea that death is a gradual process, and one that can be reversed if a dead body is frozen quickly enough
Nelson revealed that when Bedford died, he was stored in the garage of his 'pothead friends' for two weeks while the cryonic capsule was still being built
Bedford now lies suspended in liquid nitrogen in a vault in Scottsdale, Arizona
Nelson's life story and connection to the unbelievable science is also turning into a film, starring Paul Rudd
