What The Frozen Journey is all about is men and women traveling to the nearest star which is Proxima Centaur 4. 2 light years or 25 trillion miles. The story takes place in the year 2050; Spaceships in that year could travel a maximum speed of a thousand miles a second of 3,6000,000 miles an hour. Going that speed it would take 792 years to get there.
In order to make it in there lifetimes they had to freeze the bodies. At a temperature of -273 Centigrade it would put the human body into suspended animation. This temperature would completely arrest any deterioration on the human and make it last forever.
At Journey’s end the machines that froze them would automatically reverse the process and thaw them out. They would come back to life ready to start a new life at another solar system. But why go on such a brutal trip? These people had a good reason for it because our sun was dying.
