NASA Wants Volunteers to Go to Bed for a Month

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The perfect job for troubled times just may be at NASA (news - web sites), where researchers are offering $11 an hour to volunteers who agree to go to bed for a month.

Of course there's a catch: successful candidates must spend the time with their heads tilted downward at a 6 degree angle to simulate conditions of long-duration space flight. On the plus side, they get to do it in Northern California, at NASA's Ames Research Center south of San Francisco.

So far, NASA has gotten hundreds of responses to its help-wanted notice, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Heather Wilson.

``We weren't sure what to expect, but we are so far happy with the amount of responses,'' Wilson said in answer to e-mailed questions. Her voice-mail at a number listed on a NASA news release was so full it refused to take messages last week.

The only real surprise was that significantly more men than women expressed interest, Wilson said in the e-mail received on Monday.

The 10 subjects chosen will start work in January 2002, and will stay in bed for 30 days in the head-down position, according to project manager Fritz Moore.

``Head-down bed rest simulates weightlessness and induces many of the physiological changes similar to those seen with space flight,'' Moore said in a statement.

Actually, it's just you and me and your stick. And a bottle of pure red wine.

The stick can watch, but the flower girl can not. Only lifeless objects are allowed.

Ok, how about lemon yellow for the dresses, girls?

Sledge, FOX is TOO young! We'd scandalize the lad...and btw, only I can touch the stick, got that?

OK, velvet dresses it is.

They'll be red, and you each have to wear a pair of devil's horns.

Sledge? Is this ok with you? Sledge?

*sobs* I knew I'd be planning my own wedding alone.
