If you love lying around, you’ll also love NASA’s new project – staying in bed for 3 months and receiving money for it!
NASA wants to research the microgravity effects on the human body. In order to do so, they are collecting willing participants in order to put them on a bed rest for 87 days. It might sound a little bit crazy, but there are people who are actually willing to do this hard task. The participants have to go through different tests for 14 days and after the hard testing is done, they are put to bed rest. These people have to do everything in bed – even showering and socializing with other participants in the study.
But of course, the 15, 000 dollars reward comes with a few conditions. The participants must be non-smokers, must have good health and no history of problems with cardiovascular or musculoskeletal disease or hernia. They also have to come in with a good idea about how they’re going to spend their time – learning languages, playing an instrument, etc. in order to prevent restlessness. For the same reason female participants must not be pregnant.
