Earn $5,000 a month

by Randy Allen

This looks like easy money, but it's not!

NASA, the space group, is looking for volunteers who are willing to lay down in a bed for 70 days - and they’ll pay them $5,000 a month to do it.

NASA is trying to research the effects of microgravity on the body. For 70 days you lay down while they feed you, give you Internet and video games and access to visitors and weird laying down showers to keep you entertained. There are 16 hours of light and 8 hours of darkness for you to feel like you are on a normal day pattern and when it’s all over they spend two weeks helping to rehabiliate you.

Though it might sound like easy money it’s important to keep in mind that living in microgravity without much movement will take a toll on your body - that’s why you’re a human guinea pig, after all.
