NASA Wants To Pay $19,000 To People Willing To Stay In Bed For 60 Days!

-

Nasa is looking for men and women to stay in bed for 60 days to help them study how weightlessness affects the human body!

NASA and two other space agencies are asking for 24 volunteers to lie in bed for two months as part of a study.

"We are looking for test persons to take part in a bed rest study from September to December 2019 in Cologne (Germany) and spend 60 days lying down," according to a statement from the German Aerospace Agency, NASA and the European Space Agency.

The point of the study is to "research how the body changes in weightlessness. Bed rest simulates this condition," the statement said

"Especially in extreme conditions, such as in weightlessness in space, this is a challenge." 

If astronauts are to live for long periods in space, or on the moon and Mars, science needs effective measures to counteract bone and muscle atrophy.

For the next phase of the Agbresa (Artificial Gravity Bed Rest Study), the DLR seeks 12 men and 12 women who will spend their days and nights in beds.

Beds angled downward by 6 degrees, propped up with their feet at an incline above their heads, with one shoulder touching the mattress at all times. You may not stand up unless an experiment demands it.
