If you often find yourself reluctant to get up in the morning, you can consider participating in NASA’s new space research, which is paying participants US$18,500 for being in bed for two months.
The experiment is officially called the ‘Artificial Gravity Bed Rest Study’, and aims to gain new insights into how the body adapts to weightlessness. The project will take place in Cologne, Germany, and seeks German-speaking females between 24 and 55 years of age.
Due to the nature of the project, participants have to stay in bed all day for 60 days straight without leaving for meals, showers or even toilet breaks, which is admittedly quite rough. Volunteers also have to sleep with their heads titled slightly downwards to simulate conditions of spaceflight.
The silver lining lies in the available exercise options that will help you pass the time during these bedridden days. Cycling and jumping in bed can be accommodated. Still interested? Make sure to apply here.
