Big Bucks!

NASA, European Space Agency (ESA), and German Aerospace Center (DLR) 
are requesting 24 volunteers to lie in bed for two months as part of a 
study into examining how the body changes in weightlessness. The three 
space agencies will compensate each volunteer $19,000. 
    "We are looking for test persons who take part in a bed rest study 
from September to December 2019 in Cologne and spend 60 days lying 
down. Based on the study results, scientists are developing 
countermeasures that reduce the negative effects of weightlessness on 
astronauts," reads a translated DLR website for the project.
