Are you a couch potato? Can you stay one for 60-70 days approx? NASA is calling!
What Is It?
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is looking for volunteers to stay in bed for about 70 days. Nope, not kidding. They will also pay you approx $18000 too! Crazy right? Play games, read a book, Instagram away or even handle a work from home job, all while lying in bed. Yes, no getting out of bed.
The study is an attempt to understand the effect of micro gravity on our human body. Your bed will be tilted in a manner similar to astronauts in space so that the scientists can monitor your health and bodily changes.
“Being able to test new ideas on Earth saves invaluable flight time,” said Joe Neigut, the Flight Analog Project Manager at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston. It also gives you an opportunity to aid NASA in understanding the human body and breaking barriers of space.
So are you game?
