Singularity Hub has a comprehensive post about the cryonics industry.

The post begins like this:




Want to live forever? You’re not alone. For as long as we humans have contemplated our own mortality, the dream of eternal life has not been far behind. We see it reflected in our mythologies, religions, and cultural traditions, whether through a fountain of youth or an immortal soul in heaven. But the dream of cheating death has recently made the jump from superstition to science. Welcome to the world of cryopreservation.


The article covers most of the bases regarding this topic. From my point of view, seems like cryonics really is not there yet...the technology needs to improve and they really need to preserve your body immediately after death or even right before death, neither of which usually occur.
