NASA will pay people $19,000 to stay in bed for 60 days

Space agencies paying volunteers $19,000 to lay in bed for 60 days NASA to pay people $19,000 to stay in bed for 2 months

It may seem like a dream come true but there is a catch.

NASA and the European Space Agency are offering an odd job: they are paying a handsome amount for volunteers to lie in bed for weeks.

Still ready for two months of bed rest?

It said weightlessness, which can be simulated through bed rest, could affect muscles and bones through reduced stress and also shift body fluids towards the head.

If you are interested in participating in this study, the German Aerospace Center asks that you go through a multi-stage selection process.

"These studies are expected to help advance the understanding of how to keep humans safe as we move from lower-Earth orbit missions into deep space exploration", said NASA on its website. "Especially in extreme conditions, such as in weightlessness in space, this is a challenge".

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. This position reduces blood flow to the extremities, like astronauts in space experience.

Apple introduces a slew of services
Three things that contribute to those returns are interest on unpaid balances, fees for things like late payment, and complexity. Other responses in DeLong's thread have expressed frustration with Apple not adhering to these rules even if it doesn't have to.

The first round of volunteers began their 60-day bed rest on Monday. He may not stand up unless an experiment demands.

The space agency on Tuesday kicked off a three-month study in Cologne, Germany, requiring participants to stay in bed for long stretches of time in order to test gravity and how the body adapts to weightlessness. The centrifugal force can be adjusted according to the subject's size.

The space agency will select 24 participants, 12 males and 12 females, and the study will involve doing everything lying flat, including going to the toilet, reported the Sun.

Researchers are still looking for volunteers for the second phase of the study in autumn.

But just be aware, you'll need to translate the page from German to English.

Not everyone qualifies though.
