  • NASA to pay volunteers about $19,000 to stay in bed for two months

The participants will be on bed rest for two months so researchers can test the benefits of artificial gravity during long-term space missions with astronauts.

Now astronauts on the International Space Station do several hours of exercises a day to fight off the negative results of living in almost weightless conditions, which tend to breakdown muscles and bones.

Scientists are looking for womenlooking for women to stay in bed for 60 days to help them study how weightlessness affects the human body. It's not clear yet how many participants will be needed for the next round, which will be conducted at the German Aerospace Center's Institute of Aerospace Medicine in Cologne, Germany, from September to December 2019. NASA and the European Space Agency are partnering with the German Aerospace Center for an Artificial Gravity Bed Rest Study.

This is important for the astronauts who will eventually spend extended periods of time in space beyond the limited stays now experienced aboard the International Space Station. Because there is no gravity to pull blood flow to the legs, astronaut's heads fill with fluids, and their muscles and bones waste away, according to the ESA. He may not stand up unless an experiment demands.

Those chosen to participate in the study will be split into groups, but they'll all be in one room. The centrifugal force can be adjusted according to the subject's size. You need to be between 152cm and 190cm tall and have a BMI of between 19 and 30. However, note that you will have to translate the page into English. And you'll have plenty of time to relax and tackle all those books and streaming shows you've had to toss aside due to the annoying demands of everyday life. You must speak German and be between 24 and 55 and healthy.

NASA has created the flawless job for anyone who really enjoys staying in bed all day, as long as they don't mind continuing to do just that for 60 days without a break.
