NASA is offering volunteers £14,000 if they will lie in bed and watch TV for two months.
NASA wants to test how space travel will affect the astronauts that why they want to do this.
The experiment will help NASA check the artificial gravity, and the volunteer has to lie down flat. The participants cannot get up because they need to do everything lying flat even going to the toilet.
The experts from ESA and NASA will then observe and check to understand how the astronauts may get affected if they are in space for a longer time.
The main thing that they want to understand is muscle wasting. According to ESA, it is essential to understand the causes and effects of any damage that may be caused by cosmic radiation, isolation, weightless and spatial restrictions.
More than two dozen participants will be selected for the experiment, and they have to lie in bed for 60 days at a go in Cologne.
The most important part is that the participants must know how to communicate in German. The age restrictions for the participants are in between 24 to 55 years old. Every participant should be healthy so that they do not face any complications while they are on the best rest for 60 days.
The participants will have a slight incline with their feet because it will be elevated above their head and body to reduce the blood circulation in the body’s extremities. The position will help the experts in understanding the effects of space and also result in numbness and muscle wasting.
The participants will be given a lot of books and tv shows to watch just in exchange for their time and effort to lie down for so long. The participants can also use the time in some productive online courses.
The lead scientist from DLR Institute of Aerospace Medicine, Dr. Edwin Mulder said that the use of this artificial gravity is the best way to search for solutions for human health protection while they are in the space for long durations.
The participants will also undergo some treatments in the artificial gravity chamber. They will be spun around at 30 revolutions in a minute to check the how and observe the blood flow.
The participants will be divided into two groups, one will be spun, and the other group is not spun, group. It will help the experts to check the effects in both situations.
There will be a five-day orientation before the experiments start and a three-month time block to clear everything to take part in the study.
