Frankly, its a definite 'long term' shot, but not a long shot. Revival WILL be
acheived some day, and the revival priority will most likely be a 'last in,
first out' regimen, as the most recent cryonauts will likely be the easiest to
revive, so I don't think the statements of post mortem bravery posted here on
the list have much risk of being called upon at some future date.

Anytime someone has ever said "never happen", sooner or later it has happened. I
do not think cryorevival will be the exception to this rule. Teleportation MAY
be the exception. FTL travel MAY be the exception. Cryorevival will not.
