NASA Has The Right Job For You

NASA and two other space agencies are asking for 24 volunteers to lie in bed for two months for a study. The pay is 19,000. ” We are looking for test persons to take part in a bed rest study from September to December 2019 in Cologne (Germany) and spend 60 days laying down,” according to the German Aerospace Agency, NASA and the European Space Agency.

The point of the study is to “research how the body changes in weightlessness. Bed rest stimulates this condition,” the statement said. Based on the study results they receive, scientists will develop techniques to reduce the negative effects of weightlessness on astronauts.
During the two months, the volunteers will live in a single room but will be divided into small groups. One group will be rotated around in a centrifuge, which is like a gravity chamber, which will force blood back into their extremities.

When they say you must do everything while laying down, they weren’t lying. You must eat, exercise, get dressed and even shower while laying down flat. Their beds will also be tilted slightly downwards to encourage fluids to pool in the upper body. The second group won’t be moved.

A previous study participant, whose name is Janja, said that, ” participation in the study was a very special and good experience for me… What surprised me the most: after a few days my body got used to the bed rest, it was much easier than I had imagined. I didn’t get bored by the many experiments, on the contrary, time flew by.”

The study will take place in a “state-of-the-art facility.” Lakewood’s own Alexander Blinky said, ” This is cool, but I would need to stand up every once in a while.”
