NASA is offering to pay someone nearly $ 19,000 to spend two months watching TV in bed.
Researchers want to look at the effects of "artificial gravity" on the body to see if it may be beneficial to astronauts who spend a long time in space.
Twenty-four participants will travel to the German Aerospace Center and spend 60 days in observation.
The participants will be divided into two groups and will be propped up with the feet above their head. This will reduce blood flow to the extremities, mimicking the effects of being in space.
Volunteers will be required to do a number of activities while lying down including eating, reading, watching TV and going to the bathroom. One of the groups will do all this while spinning.
To quality, participants must speak German, be in good health and be between 24 and 55 years old.
