Wanted: Someon to lay in bed for 60 days doing nothing, while people fuss over you

Scientists at The Institute for Space Medicine and Physiology in Toulouse want to pay you £13,000 to lie in bed for 60 days.

Dr Arnaud Beck, coordinating doctor, says, ‘The idea of this study is to reproduce the weightlessness of the International Space Station (ISS).

50% of the group will take drugs to counteract the effects of weightlessness, the other won’t.

The idea is that lying down for that long will mimic the effects of being weightless on the body.

‘During the first two weeks our scientists will do a whole series of tests and measurements on the volunteers. This will be followed by a 60-day period during which they must remain in bed, the head slightly inclined downwards at less than six degrees.’ Dr Arnaud Beck continued.
