Stasis is Unrealistic

Stasis as a means to human space exploration beyond the Solar System is about 200 years away.

Why?

Primarily, one has prove that statis is safe and does not have long term effects, because nobody is going to fund a stasis based trip if there is even the remote possibility of DOA, Dead On Arrival.

For that you definitely need FDA approval, and that is about 7 years after the statis drug discovery. Discovery alone could take 10 years.

Then there post-FDA human testing. Can you find a small sample of a hundred people to volunteer being in test-statis for 40 years?

Would they wake up? What would the side effects be? How do you overcome these side effects? Then second round. Then third round, then . . .

Several cycles later, may be 200+ years, you’d have something safe. So statis is a nice idea but realistically not anytime soon.
