科学家正在寻找愿意在床上躺两个月的24-55岁女性,以确定失重对人体的影响,而且愿意为此给每个人支付1.65万欧元(约合18522美元)的费用。

美国国家航空航天局称,当宇航员在太空中时,微重力导致的失重可能会引发人体的变化,并最终导致骨骼和肌肉分解,以及体液流向大脑。

德国航空中心的科学家受欧洲太空总署和美国国家航空航天局委托,开展一项有关如何应对失重影响的研究。参与者并非是浮在失重环境中,而是躺在床上,模拟微重力造成的影响。

该研究的目标是弄清楚如何应对失重环境对人体的影响,这样国际太空站的科学家就无需在日间花大量的时间进行锻炼。

每一位参与者将入住属于自己的私密房间,而且将进行各种活动,包括在躺着时洗澡、吃饭和上厕所。餐食将由一支由营养学家组成的团队精心打造。

除了愿意在床上躺两个月、年龄24-55岁的健康女性这些要求之外,该研究还有最后一个要求:参与者必须会说德语。(财富中文网)

Scientists are looking for women ages 24-55 willing to stay in bed for 60 days in order to determine how weightlessness affects the human body—and they’re willing to pay you 16,500 euros (around $18,522) to do it.

When astronauts are in space, the weightlessness caused by microgravity can cause changes to human’s bodies that can ultimately lead to bones and muscles breaking down and fluid moving toward a person’s head, according to NASA.

Scientists at the German Aerospace Center have been commissioned by the European Space Agency and NASA to conduct a study on how they can counteract the effect of weightlessness. Instead of floating around in a weightless environment, instead participants will stay in bed, simulating the effects caused by microgravity.

The goal is to figure out how to counteract the effects of a weightless atmosphere on the human body so scientists at the International Space Station don’t have to spend as much of their time during the day exercising.

Each participant will have their own private room and will do all activities, including showering, eating, and going to the bathroom, while lying down. Meals will be curated by a team of nutritionists.

Beyond being a healthy woman between the ages of 24-55 willing to stay in bed for two months the study has just one final requirement: you need to be able to speak German.
