If you want to earn a whopping amount of Rs. 11.2 lakh for doing literally nothing, then you could be in luck. A space research centre is offering a job in which you’re required to do absolutely nothing! 

Researchers at France’s Institute of Space Medicine and Physiology are searching for volunteer who can spend three months straight lying in the bed, so that they could study the effect of microgravity. 

This job is offering a handsome amount of money, that is. 16,000 Euros or Rs. 11.2 lakh to be precise. 

The Telegraph has reported that the researchers are in need of a human body while recreating the weightlessness of the International Space Station. 

The selected candidate will spend the three months on the bed for the study, which will have three phases. 

During the first two weeks, a series of examination and measurements would be conducted on the candidate. 

The next 60 days, volunteers will spend entirely in the bed. And for the last two weeks, there would a rehabilitation and physical recovery process. 

This study is being conducted to study the effects of prolonged bed rest in humans. 

This job, though, might seem simple to you. But there are some strict eligibility criteria.
