NASA employs volunteers in the strangest work ever!

24 volunteers who would agree to lie in bed for 60 days!

Here is another job offer that should be talked about. NASA, in partnership with the European Space Agency (ESA), is recruiting 24 volunteers who would agree to lie in bed for 60 days. Once recruited, the 12 men and 12 women will have to lie, their head tilted at six degrees (to simulate the movement of astronauts body fluids in a space shuttle), for two months, and with a formal prohibition to get up. Then will be added 29 days of acclimatization and recovery. A dream job for some but a nightmare for others paid 16 500 Euros.

The purpose of this mission?

Study the effect of artificial gravity on the body for a long time and help astronauts stay healthy in space. This issue has become a real concern, as NASA explains: "The results of the study help scientists to develop more effective preventive measures so that astronauts on the space station do not have to pass the major part of their day playing sports. " Indeed, even today, astronauts are forced to do two and a half hours of physical exercise a day to avoid the weakening of bones and muscles and mitigate the effects of microgravity. "Adding a dose of artificial gravity could be essential for long-term missions," says ESA.

Researchers will also benefit from this study to find the most appropriate diet and exercise for astronauts. They will observe parameters such as balance, metabolism, cardiovascular function, muscle strength or cognitive performance.


Another peculiarity, participants will have to spend about 30 minutes a day in what NASA describes as a "human centrifuge", a machine that will be used to redistribute fluids in the body.

The study will take place from September in Cologne, Germany. NASA is currently looking for women aged 24 to 55 who speak German.
