"All experiments, meals, and leisure pursuits will take place lying down during the bed-rest phase", said the German Aerospace Center in a statement.

The short-arm centrifuge in Germany will be used during the first joint long-term bedrest rest study commissioned by the European Space Agency and NASA to investigate the potential of artificial gravity in mitigating the effects of spaceflight.

NASA has been conducting studies under its Human Research Program (HRP) that is dedicated to discovering the best methods and technologies to support safe and productive human space travel.

NASA and the European Space Agency are paying people more than $18,000 for a couple of months of work to study the effects of weightlessness on the human body.

He mentioned further that this acquisition would provide Mac Donald's customers more convenience on their own terms. McDonald's wants to be able to anticipate the answer to that question by investing in artificial intelligence.

The study aims to find out if artificial gravity may help keep astronauts healthy during space missions.

In addition to the 60 days required for bed rest, participants will stay an additional 29 days for acclimation and supervised recovery involving stretching, massage and physiotherapy.

Like most dream jobs, the offer comes with a catch. The study pays participants $19,000 (16,500 euro) and is known as AGBRESA study 2019.

Each participant will have a private room and stay in a bed inclined at 6 ° with the head end downwards. To volunteer, you must speak German. "Our team consists of scientific, physiotherapeutic and medical professionals - and nutritionists are also on board to take care of your physical well-being", says the website. You need to be between 152cm and 190cm tall and have a BMI of between 19 and 30.

Though the study has already begun, DLR is seeking participants for a second phase, which will kick off in September. Note that you will have to translate the page into English.
