NASA will pay you if you qualify! I'm thinking about this...

This is like my dream job! I always wanted a job as a mattress tester. I am not sure about 24 hours a day though. I think I would get tired of staying in bed all day.

tired. get it? I made a funny.

Bringing the question how do you rest from resting?

They will have two groups, one exercising and the other non exercising.

I just want a job where I get paid for 8 hours of sleep at night, and then get the days to do whatever I want. Then it is like getting paid to not have a job.

LOL. Well, I applied for it. They're looking for a representative sample of thr general NASA population so maybe I'll be a wee bit on the older side. I'll let you know what happens.

Smokey will have to find a hotel in the mean time....if I get in, that is.

I've been reading some test subjects' stories about their experiences. There will be some poking, prodding, and even some electrocution (not really, but they may simulate a leg or two to test reflexes, for some reason). Reading, computer, even crafts allowed as long as you don't get up AT ALL.

Erk...hmmm..

LOL. It may be up to a year before I hear back, so on with life.

Apparently these dogs are trying out for the job too.

I would be concerned about muscle atrophy. Don't they already know what happens with bedridden patients that muscles atrophy?

That's the point of the studies. They're exploring issues of atrophy in space. I gather they're looking at the effects of long trips to Mars, or staying on the Moon for extended periods. Remember there's not much gravity in either place.

I do not think I am willing to sacrifice my health or well-being for the sake of the space program. Or for the money. No thanks.
