Space scientists want to pay you almost $19,000 to lie in bed for 2 months

The effects of bed rest are similar to that of microgravity on the human body.

(CNN)If you always struggle to get out of bed in the morning, this might be the perfect gig for you.

Scientists are looking for women to stay in bed for 60 days to help them study how weightlessness affects the human body. As a reward for participating in the study, they will pay 16,500 euros, or about $18,522.
When astronauts are in space, the weightlessness caused by microgravity changes their body. The reduced physical stress in space leads their muscles and bones to break down and body fluids to shift toward their head, according to the German Aerospace Center, which was commissioned by NASA and the European Space Agency to conduct the study.
