The National Astronomical and Space Administration (NASA), Next German space agency NVIHOP Aerospace Medical Research Center (DLR), Explore the effects of microgravity conditions on sleep. In this framework, they are looking for volunteers and pay 11,000 euros to sleep., Reported by the portal Business Insider.
As the DLR announced on its official website, Study participants had to spend 59 days in bed with a 6-degree incline, as had already happened in previous studies.
Award, pointed out With one, A total of 11,000 euros to cover expenses and is distributed in fixed payments to all volunteers.
In the meantime, the requirements are as follows: Men and women between the ages of 24 and 55 who are free of the disease may participate. Likewise, they must be non-smokers; 153 cm and 190 cm high and speak German.
Gift, BI As pointed out, a total of 11,000 euros is being distributed in fixed allowances to all volunteers to cover the expenses.
Definitely, This is a study for those who want to get a substantial amount just for sleeping.
In 2017, the United States Space Agency, in conjunction with the German Space Agency’s (DLR) Envihop Aerospace Medicine Research Center, launched a joint venture called VaPER.VIIP and Psychology: envihab research), Which involves studying the pressure of fluids in the eyes and optic nerves of astronauts.
According to With one, During the trial, the volunteers simulated the conditions of microgravity and carbon dioxide magnification occurring at the International Space Station (ISS) and tilted their heads to the bed with a six-degree incline.
During the experiment, 11 volunteers underwent two weeks of training for the duration of the study.
Then, in 2019, the investigation was intensified. They increased the study to three months to see how weight loss affects the adverse effects of space on the human body. In this way, the European Space Agency (ESA) also joined.
According to the release, the name of the project is AGBRESA (Artificial gravity bed rest study) And has already recognized the importance of preventing the effects of space on astronauts.
“Manned space travel will continue to be important for conducting future gravity tests, but astronauts need to make it as safe as possible.Hansjörg Dittus, a member of the DLR Executive Committee, explained.
“This study of the bed rest of the DLR, NASA and ESA provides an opportunity for astronauts from across Europe and the United States to work together and collectively share scientific knowledge of human physiology,” he added.
In this case, the volunteers were 24, 12 men and 12 women, and they spent 89 days in research – 60 of which were in bed-.
Now, the study continues and NASA is looking for new volunteers who want to participate and is being charged up to 11 euros for sleeping.
