If you want some space, NASA wants to pay you £14,000 to stay in bed
‘A stay in space, in weightlessness, changes the body,’ NASA explained on the website. ‘The reduced physical stress leads to the breakdown of muscles and bones.
‘In addition, the body fluids shift towards the head. The same is observed in people who lie in bed for a long time.
‘Therefore, the study simulates the condition in space with bed rest. In order to simulate conditions as similar as possible in space, the subjects have to lie with the head 6° down.
‘The results of the study help scientists develop more effective countermeasures or preventive measures so that astronauts on the space station do not have to spend most of their day doing sports.’
Researchers explained that participants will have to be on a standardised diet too with enough fluids and nutrients to make sure you’re healthy and do not put any weight on.
Could you handle all of that for £14k?
If so, you’ll have to be a healthy female between the ages of 24 and 55. The study kicks off in September 2019 in Cologne, Germany. You can apply here.
