Lay Around on Your Astronaut
NASA is conducting a study about the long-term effects of weightlessness by asking applicants to stay completely horizontal for 70 days. In exchange for staying in bed and never standing up up, even to use the restroom or shower, NASA will pay test subjects $18,000, which works out to $1,200 per week or $257 per day. Anthony and Jeff wonder if they could stand it, and why NASA is holding out on horizontal showering technology for everyone.
