Just learned that about 120 climbers of everest have died and remain on
the mountain.  Many of the bodies may have cooled slowly enough to avoid
post freeze degradation but would have the ravages of unprotected
freezing as well as some
continuing dehydration or other natural degradations as would occur at
sub freezing temps.

However, these persons are there and if retrieved at some future point
may be among those who may be potential "Cryonaut" candidates for
application of  restorative technology.

This would be a good episodic topic for a Century City type of show.

Who owns the bodies?
Who has the right to retrieve and restore the bodies?
What are the consequences if the descendants take issue with the
proceedings which result in some sucesses, some partial successes and
some  failures?
Could tissue from the corpses be used to grow replacement bodies or
parts thereof?
