Katee Sackhoff Tours Alcor

  • Should I FREEZE MYSELF when I die? Katee Sackhoff, an actress best known for her starring role in the TV series Battlestar Galactica (2004-2009), toured Alcor on February 7, 2020. She states: “Follow me as I get a fascinating tour of a real-life cryonics facility, with real-life (currently dead) frozen bodies in it. You can decide for yourself if cryonics lands more in the realm of science or fiction. There has been some definite controversy around this subject and I’m not here to promote it one way or the other.”
