    into.  hibernation is not seen as an imposed state in the idea of under.  It is, in many ways (humans do not hibernate of their own volition), but we still look at it as a state one can enter, like sleep (it is sleep in a way) rather than a forced condition like anesthesia (placed under the influence of something else).

    "Hibernation" refers to sleeping through the winter. The best way to express what you're trying to say is "the spaceship's passengers were put in a state of suspended animation."
