Space voyages are costly and pose an imminent threat to the voyagers. This is why NASA is searching for possible leads that can make space exploration safer. A scientist must know and understand the toll that space gives to the human body. The absence of gravity poses different syndromes that alter bodily functions. One syndrome causes the blood flow on the body to be pulled away from the legs. As a result, NASA and ESA collaborated to study how the body reacts and adapts to the absence of gravity. The space agencies are in search of two dozen candidates who are volunteering to spend 2 months in bed. This will help scientists understand how space voyages affect astronauts. They are offering $18,500 for the participants. The study will be placed on Cologne, Germany.
The German Aerospace Center is a technology-rich facility that studies space voyage and its effects on the human body. If you are looking positive on being a participant, things must be considered first. You must be between the age of 24 and 55. As a participant who would undergo a study under NASA, you must be fit to work under all circumstances. And lastly, you must be able to speak German, since it will be held at Germany.
Now the research procedures would last for 89 days, 60 days of the totality is will be spent in the bed. The participants would go for 60 days lying in bed. Everything that they do would have to be done in the bed, from eating to going to the bathroom. Furthermore, participants would be inclined to spend 14 days after the research for rehabilitation.
Meals will be prepared with no artificial sweeteners and additives. The research will ensure will sufficient nutrition would be supplied for the participants. So, there is no need to worry for food-shortage while on the study.
