NASA will pay you $19,000 to stay in bed — and be spun in a centrifuge.

So NASA is paying $19,000 to volunteers to test it artificial gravity machine.

Volunteers will be spun in a sort of human centrifuge that generates artificial gravity. Reports also say that volunteers would spend 2 months on the experiment.
The prolonged bed rest is part of a study that launched this week into the effects of weightlessness on the human body. Phase 2 will be conducted by the German Aerospace Center (DLR) from September through December in Cologne, Germany.

In a translated DLR website it reads “We are interested in how to maintain the health and performance of man — in space and on Earth, Especially in extreme conditions, such as in weightlessness in space, this is a challenge.”
For the next phase of the Agbresa (Artificial Gravity Bed Rest Study), the DLR seeks 12 men and 12 women who will spend their days and nights in beds angled downward by 6 degrees, propped up with their feet at an incline above their heads, with one shoulder touching the mattress at all times. This position reduces blood flow to the extremities, like astronauts in space experience.😯😱😲

The study will be taking place in a DLR medical research facility called envihab and also together with the $19,000 cash money, participants also get some other benefits.

Requirements to enter the study include, the participant must speak German, must be between 24-55. And also after the 60 days study, participants would spend another 29 days for acclimation and supervised recovery involving stretching, massage and physiotherapy.
