Re: starship-design: Cryogenic Suspension

   I cringe at the thought of microwaving a human being, and cringe even
more at the freezing.

   We're thinking about DNA and cancers when we should be thinking about
mechanical damage to tissues first. Remember the simple reason why exposure
to microwave energy is regulated by the FCC, very slight heating of certain
tissues, especially in the eye, causes mechanical damage, particularly
cataracts. Freezing those suckers would be disasterous, even if you can
re-awaken the cells themselves later.
