NASA has created the flawless job for anyone who really enjoys staying in bed all day, as long as they don't mind continuing to do just that for 60 days without a break.

KTRK reports that the German Aerospace Center will pay 24 participants almost $19,000 to spend two months on bed rest.

You'd be on bed rest for sixty days while researchers study the effects of weightlessness on the human body. The facility is operated by the Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Space Agency (DLR).

Scientists believe adding artificial gravity could be key to keeping astronauts healthy during longer missions.

"Crewed spaceflight will continue to be important in the future in order to carry out experiments in microgravity, but we must make it as safe as possible for the astronauts", said Hansjörg Dittus, DLR Executive Board Member for Space Research and Technology, in a statement.

Another 150 "party seats" in the lower house will be allocated under a complex proportional representation formula. Earlier counts showed that in a handful of provinces more than half the ballots cast were invalidated.

"This bed rest study conducted by DLR, NASA and ESA offers space researchers from all over Europe and the United States of America the opportunity to work together and jointly acquire as much scientific knowledge about human physiology as possible". "What surprised me the most: after a few days my body got used to the bed rest, it was much easier than I had imagined".

The center is now looking for test person to take part in a bed rest study from September to December 2019.

The requirements for participants are healthy women between 24 and 55 years of age who are non-smokers.

A team of nutritionists will curate the meals so that participants do not gain weight and have all the nutrients they need. Participants can be between 153 and 190cm with a BMI of 19-30kg/m2. You can impress friends and employers with your discipline and perseverance, it notes.
