Washington: NASA has invited volunteers to opt for their “Bed Rest Studies” program, in which the space agency has decided to pay USD 18,000 to those who can spend 70 straight days in bed and smoke different kinds of cannabis.
The people who will be selected for the program will be allowed to play games, read books, Skype, and smoke cannabis.
Through this exercise NASA aims to achieve three goals:
- Understand changing physiology in space and its effects on the process of certain missions
- Analyse impact of one’s physiological state on their ability to perform in particular tasks
- To combat any impairment that the physiological state may impose
The participants will be divided into two groups exercising and non-exercising. While the exercising group will be subject to exercise training, the latter will remain comfortably at ease.
The exercise will last between 97 and 105 days, depending on which group one belongs to.
For the first 13 days, the non-exercising subjects will be able to move freely and the exercising subjects will be able to move freely inside their bed facility for 21 days.
But after the above-mentioned period everybody will be put on bed for 70 days.
The volunteers will move out of their beds only when he/she will be subjected to medical tests. The tests will be done to ascertain bone, heart, nervous, muscle, nutritional condition.
