Before you jump at the job you might want to consider a few of the requirements first.
1 – No sitting up.
2 – No standing up.
3 – You much exercise while lying down.
4 – You’ll get almost no sunlight.
5 – Seven different research projects will be done on you while you lay there.
The job will be in Galveston, Texas and will last for 15 weeks with the paycheck averaging $5,000 a month.
A NASA researcher told the Houston Chronicle the whole idea if for the people involved to “experience the same physical changes that astronauts go through on long missions."
The idea is to further discover "the musculoskeletal and psychological effects of long-term confinement to a reduced gravity environment."
