A NASA Study is willing to pay you $100,000 to stay in Bed for sixty days

Many people across the world are night owls who love staying up at night. But what happens when you are made to stay in bed the whole time? Would that be possible even for a night owl? NASA recently announced a study that requires candidates to stay in bed for 60 days. The study is part of their NASA bed rest studies to observe the effects of immobility and bed rest on astronauts and to find ways to manage the decline in muscle atrophy and bone density problems usually faced by astronauts who have to stay for long durations in space.

2 NASA is looking for volunteers for bed rest studies

NASA is looking for volunteers as part of their bed rest studies and will even pay handsomely for the job. Bit although the payout is awesome, the job will be a tough one where participants will lie on a special bed that reduces blood pressure and decreases blood volume gradually.

3 Risk of sickness and weakness after few days

As days progress, the muscles of participants might start to deteriorate and sink into a condition called muscle atrophy which is what happens when you are immobile for a long time. Bone density will also decrease.
