NASA offering job that pays you $27000 to sleep for 60 days

NASA sleep study

The facility is operated by the Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Space Agency (DLR).

Half of the volunteers will be put a machine that spins them around for half an hour, mimicking what an artificial gravity chamber would do.

KTRK reports that the German Aerospace Center will pay 24 participants almost $19,000 to spend two months on bed rest.

"A number of different experiments will be carried out over the course of the study, looking at cardiovascular function, balance and muscle strength, metabolism and cognitive performance among other factors", the European Space Agency said.

This story was first published on CNN.com, "Space scientists want to pay you nearly $19,000 to lie in bed for 2 months".

The study will benefit astronauts who spend a great deal of time in space.

Like most dream jobs, the offer comes with a catch.




The researchers have already created a "short-arm human centrifuge" that generates artificial gravity and corrects the distribution of body fluids. As a reward for participating in the study, they will pay 16,500 euros, or about $18,522.

In 2017 NASA conducted a similar bed rest study, in which 11 people spent 30 days in bed.

If you speak German, NASA needs you!

By the end of 60 days, scientists hope that the research will shed more light on the human physiological, neurological, and behavioural outcomes of spaceflight.

According to translated reviews from participants and workers in other parts of this study, the team is constantly looking after your well-being and cooking nutritious food for your body.

Though the study has already begun, DLR is seeking participants for a second phase, which will kick off in September. You can impress friends and employers with your discipline and perseverance, it notes.
