Get $19k to stay in bed for 2 months

Space agencies paying volunteers $19,000 to lay in bed for 60 days

If you are interested in participating in this study, the German Aerospace Center asks that you go through a multi-stage selection process. They say that bed rest actually simulates this condition. You'd be spending 60 days in the sack for the Artificial Gravity Bed Rest Study (AGBRESA). This centrifuge is being used to recreate Earth's gravity during the first joint long-term bed rest study between ESA and USA space agency NASA into the potential of artificial gravity in mitigating the effects of spaceflight.

NASA researchers are making that offer. So much that the thought of staying in bed for two months is appealing?

The study aims to find out if artificial gravity may help keep astronauts healthy during space missions.

"This bed rest study. offers space researchers from all over Europe and the U.S. the opportunity to work together and jointly acquire as much scientific knowledge about human physiology as possible".

The study will take place in DLR a medical research facility called the envihab (from the words environment and habitat).

In addition, the study will use a short-arm centrifuge as a way of re-creating gravity for participants, allowing scientists to study the potential of artificial gravity in mitigating the effects of spaceflight. The beds are angled downwards towards the head end by six degrees.

According to translated reviews from participants and workers in other parts of this study, the team is constantly looking after your well-being and cooking nutritious food for your body. Participants can be between 153 and 190cm with a BMI of 19-30kg/m2.

The first round of volunteers began their 60-day bed rest on Monday.

Plus, as this experiment is happening at the German Aerospace Centre in Cologne you need to be able to speak German and be over 18.
