Frozen on the Battlefield

Frozen on the Battlefield

Riverside

Live Science Magazine has reported on a program under development by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). DARPA, the U.S. agency responsible for creating new technologies for the military, is considering a scientific breakthrough that would literally slow down the body’s biochemical reactions and tip the body into a “slowed or suspended state until medical care was available.” The program, called Biostasis, would “slow life to save life.” 

When troops are injured in the field, time is of the essence. How long it takes for them to receive medical care can make the difference between life and death. The Biostasis process could buy time for battlefield injuries, not by getting faster medical care to the injured but by slowing down time by putting the injured in a suspended state. For more information on how this process is being developed, visit www.livescience.com.
