Scientists want to pay you £13,000 to lie in bed for 60 days

It’s the dream: actually being paid to lie in bed for 60 entire days, doing nothing, while people fuss over you.

And scientists are willing to pay you £13,000 to do it, according to French newspaper 20 Minutes.

The Institute for Space Medicine and Physiology in Toulouse wants people to do it – to find out the effects of prolonged weightlessness on the body.

You’ll need to keep one shoulder in contact with the bed at all times (yes, including while pooing and weeing).

Half 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 weightles on the body.

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

‘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.’
