(from Latin aestas
, summer), also known as "summer sleep", is a state of animal dormancy
somewhat similar to hibernation
. It takes place during times of heat and dryness, the hot dry season, which is often but not inevitably the summer months."
So by the looks of it, scientists could send humans (after a few more years of research) into a state of estivation, and we would never have to experience this whole "Summer" bullshit. Go to sleep in May, wake up in november. I'd be down!
