Can humans hibernate?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are some stories of humans having hibernation like abilities, but it is not a healthy process. If a human were to go into a state of hibernation, all of their vital organs would have to essentially shut down and body temperature would drop drastically. For every story of a human that has survived in a hibernation like state, there are plenty of others that did not fare so well. There are some technologies being developed that are thought to possibly allow human hibernation. This would be valuable in long distance space travel or being able to suspend someone in time while waiting for a transplant. While it may be technology of the future, there is currently not a safe way for a human to hibernate.
