If you always struggle to get out of bed in the morning, it might be the perfect concert for you.
Scientists are looking for women to stay in bed for 60 days to help them investigate how weightlessness affects the human body. As a prize for participating in the survey, they will pay 16,500 euros, or about 18,522 dollars.
When astronauts are in space, weightlessness caused by microgravity changes their body. The reduced physical load in space forces the muscles and bones to break and the body fluids to move to their head, according to the German Aerospace Center, which was commissioned by NASA and the European Space Agency to conduct the study.
weightlessness effects on bed rest, scientists hope to develop methods to counteract the impact of weightlessness so astronauts do not have to spend most of their time in space station exercises.
centrifuge, which generates artificial gravity and corrects the distribution of body fluids. They hope to test it for two-thirds of the survey participants each day.

"Space shipships will continue to be important in the future to conduct microgravity experiments, but we must make it as safe as possible for astronauts," says Hansyord Dithus, Member of the Space Research and Technology Management Board at the German Aerospace Center.
"This bed rest study … offers space researchers from across Europe and the United States the opportunity to work together and jointly to acquire as much scientific knowledge as possible in human physiology
Participants will do everything in a lying position
All activities – including eating, showering and going to the bathroom – should be done while lying.
Each participant will have a separate room and stay in a bed. at 6 ° with the head down.
A team of nutritionists will cure the food so that participants do not gain weight and have all the nutrients they need. The German Aerospace Center, however, says on its website that the food is not "particularly healthy", and sometimes there will be pancakes or other sweets
The study consists of two rounds. The first group of 24 participants in the test – 12 men and 12 women – began on Tuesday. It is still unclear how many participants will be needed for the next round to be held at the Institute of Aerospace Medicine at the German Aerospace Center in Cologne, Germany, from September to December 2019.
Scientists are looking for healthy women between the ages of 24 and 55, who are not smokers to participate in the study, according to the survey website. Participants need to be able to speak German  In 2017, NASA conducted a similar bed rest study where 11 people spent 30 days in bed.
