Surely they're better than Ancient pods. The clone experimented on by Heimdall was thirty thousand years old and showed no signs of aging like the alternate-reality Weir did. JalYt-Xil-Vimescarrot 14:52, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Yeah but the Asgard in question was probably dead. Stasis chambers slow the body down but if its already dead then it would just stop the body from decomposing. Also, the Ancients do possess a better type of stasis pod like the one used on Ayaina, I think the ones so far discovered on Atlantis are purely for short-time. Sman789 19:03, 24 January 2009 (UTC)
Ayaina was not inside a stasis pod. She was FROZEN!!!!22:13, May 2, 2011 (UTC)Leonardo
- And what do you mean by the ones on Atlantis being short term. They worked fine in The Last Man, and the only reason Weir aged in Before I Sleep was that power was diverted from that system. The Ancient pods on Atlantis are most likely comparable or even more advanced. However, the pods on the Aurora are obviously not in the same league, though I'm not sure they really did anything about suspended animation. And as to the question of the Asgard, its probably easier to maintain a corpse than keep the body alive. That being said, there's no true way to compare the two, as canon never showes enough about either really. Phoenix304 (talk) (Contribs) 22:21, May 2, 2011 (UTC)
- The Ancient Stasis Pods both in Milky Way and Pegasus (all of them) slow the ageing process significantly, but not entirely. In "Before I Sleep" the alternate Weir didn't age because of the power's diversion of the system. She was in the pod for TEN THOUSAND YEARS!!! Although her aging process was decreased by the pod, she did age. The same happened to the crew of the Aurora - they were in those pods for ten thousand years and their bodies aged (slowly, but they did). In "The Last Man" Sheppard didn't remain in the pod for such a great period of time, so he didn't age like the others.

- How is possible that the Gamekeeper pods seem to be better than the ancient ones???Portalier (talk) (Contribs) 16:04, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Stasis Pod in FROZEN?!?! Edit
I was reading this page and, in the Ancient technology, I noticed this: "They do appear to possess a more advanced version that does not age a person at all for even millions of years,as was used on Ayiana, but this may have just been some form of Ancient time-diallation technology used for the same purpose."
This is wrong?!!! Ayiana was not inside a stasis pode or using some sort of time-diallation device. She was frozen in a block of ice, like some animals that are found nowadays. It's more likely that her organism developed some sort of biochemical substance to avoid her death. Some kind of Antifreeze proteins, like the Antarctic cod (Doctor Fraiser theorized that in the episode).
Remember... Ayiana was one of the Ancients! Their physiology is far advanced than ours. Some of them lived in Antartica since their arrival on Earth (circa 50 million years ago). It's possible that, in time, their organisms developed mechanisms to support such low temperatures (from 50 to 10 million years ago Antartica was already becoming very cold).
Remember what Doctor Fraiser said: "giving enough time, evolution can do some pretty amazing things."184.108.40.206 23:53, May 12, 2010 (UTC)Leonardo
She was frozen they chipped her out the ice, as Fraiser said probably an internal defense because we know that animals can why not advanced humans! Portalier (talk) (Contribs) 16:14, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Stasis Chamber with a Time Dilation Device Edit
I was thinking, would a Asgard time dilation device built into a Ancient stasis chamber mean that someone could 'leapfrog' tens or even hundreds of thousands of years while only aging hours, days or whatever. What does anyone else think ? 220.127.116.11 12:07, June 26, 2013 (UTC)
