Ever wished you could get paid to stay in bed? Well, one group of researchers are happy to do just that.
The Institute for Space Medicine and Physiology in France is looking for people to spend two months lying in bed to help them study the effects of microgravity.
They're offering to pay €16000, but while it sounds like an easy gig, you have to spend an entire sixty days eating, sleeping and washing while staying permanently lying down.
Dr Arnaud Beck, who is co-ordinating the study, explained that "the rule of the game is to keep at least one shoulder in contact with the bed".
"The idea with this study is to reproduce the weightlessness of the International Space Station". During the first two weeks, scientific teams will carry out a series of examinations and measurements, and then for the next 60 days participants "must remain totally bedridden, with the head slightly inclined downwards, at least six degrees."
The final two weeks will be spent on "rehabilitation and physical recovery and new measures to study the effects of prolonged bed rest".
Volunteers for the study must be perfectly fit and healthy men who don't smoke and are aged between 20 and 45 years old.
