"Although the effects of weightlessness are primarily investigated on the International Space Station, analogues such as: envihab are helpful when studying certain research topics under controlled conditions on Earth", says Leticia Vega, Associate Chief Scientist for International Collaborations for NASA's Human Research Program.
"To make these missions possible, various risks to astronaut health must be minimized". The reduced physical stress in space leads their muscles and bones to break down and body fluids to shift toward their head, according to the German Aerospace Center, which was commissioned by NASA and the European Space Agency to conduct the study.
The study aims to see how "artificial gravity" affects the human body and participants will need to do everything lying flat, including going to the toilet.
As the ESA itself points out, it may sound like the easiest job in the world, but staying in bed for 60 days is created to atrophy your bones and muscles so they can study ways to counteract these effects.
But what does lying in bed have to do with weightlessness in space? More details about this study can be found out from the German Aerospace Center.
While 12 of the participants will undergo treatments akin to that of an "artificial gravity" chamber and also be spun around in a centrifuge at 30 revolutions a minute in the hope it will force blood back into their extremities.
In addition, the study will use a short-arm centrifuge as a way of re-creating gravity for participants, allowing scientists to study the potential of artificial gravity in mitigating the effects of spaceflight.
NASA researchers are making that offer.
In addition to the $19,000 stipend, the DLR points out additional benefits to participating in the study.
During the 89-day stay in Germany, volunteers would spend 15 days getting familiar with the study, 60 days in bed and then 14 days of rest and rehab.
