While browsing some of the websites on cryonics, I’ve come across this page, a spreadsheet which performs a quick analysis of the odds of a successful cryonic revival. It allows a user to enter their estimates of various events happening in a given period, such as the failure of the cryonics facility due to various causes, when revival technology will be developed, and so forth. (There’s also a more advanced calculator here, which I’m not going to worry about at the moment.)

What are your best estimates of the relevant factors?


(Or, in case it might save a step: my own current age is 35, and my current estimate of my mean time of death across all my futures is when I’m 78. Given that, what is your best estimate of the probability that I’ll be successfully revived from cryonic suspension?)
