The US space agency is offering around Rs.11 lakh if you are selected to participate in a three-month study that requires you to stay in bed rest for three months. The study is aimed at finding out ways to keep astronauts healthier and safer when they spend a long time in space. Head-down bed rest helps researchers study people on earth in a way that causes some of the changes the body goes through while travelling in space without gravity. "The study will show how much your body, tilted down slightly with head down and feet up, for 70 days, without getting out of bed, except for limited times, like an astronaut's body in space flight," NASA said.
