Yes you are reading it correct, NASA the National Aeronautics and Space Administration of the United States is currently looking for people who are willing to lie in a special bed, tilted head-down at a six-degree angle, for 70 days…straight. Selected participants will be paid $1,200 per week for 15 weeks: a total of $18,000. Several limitations are associated with it, Candidates will need to pass rigorous physical and psychological tests to ensure that they resemble, according to the application form. The selected one can spend their time doing anything they want — surfing the Internet, reading, even working remotely if their job al55low them to do so but the condition is the can’t get out of bed.
The motive behind the study is to examine the effects of micro gravity on humans during extended space missions. Tilting the bed affects the cardiovascular system in ways similar to those experienced in space, and lying in a horizontal position causes muscle and bone density atrophy. After the 70 days period end, participants will have to perform a series of exercises and tasks that resemble those astronauts would do once they arrived at their destination. This test will help the scientists to figure out some results which will help astronauts maintain their health while in space. The test is titled “CFT 70 (Countermeasure and Functional Testing in Head-Down Tilt Bed Rest Study),” aimed to learn more about how human bone and muscle might deteriorate in space.
