If lying in bed for 60 days while getting paid for it sounds like an out-of-this-world deal, NASA sure has the flawless gig for you.
As part of the study, 12 male and 12 female volunteers will spend 60 days in bed in the :envihab facility at the DLR Institute of Aerospace Medicine in Cologne.
According to Leticia Vega, Associate Chief Scientist for International Collaborations for NASA's Human Research Program, the restrictions placed on the volunteers produce effects that are "similar to what astronauts experience in space", which can then be combined with what's known from studying humans in the weightless environment aboard ISS.
The space agencies want Earth-bound volunteers to test how artificial gravity might help keep astronauts healthy in space, the CNET reported on Friday.
