SciFriday: Space Zombies!

A Russian cryogenics company wants to send people who want to live forever into space, cryogenically frozen to preserve them until technology and medicine allow the nearly-but-not-quite-dead to be revived and cured or uploaded into avatars.

That’s not science, it’s a scam.

Also: Microsoft and Amazon introduce Cortana and Alexa to one another; asteroid Florence flies by; and UFO seekers gather at Devil’s Tower, Wyoming.

Thanks to Marcy Nejat and Promised Land Messianic Fellowship of Hull, Georgia for this week’s SCIENCE!
