It's temping but I think I'd start to go insane, I don't think I could lay in bed for that long I'd much rather actually be in space for that period.

Prior to reading I thought that was a great deal. Now that I've read it, $10K is not really even close to enough money, not for me anyways.

Sounds appealing at first but honestly I don't think I could lay still for that long. $10 isn't even that much for how long you're doing it. You are essentially working 24/7 for NASA for 70 days, at $10,000 that works out to just under $6 per hour. So basically you are getting paid minimum wage for 70 days of being forced to stay in a bed.

If it sounds appealing, you can sign up. But no worries if you don't qualify. NASA has a history of reaching out to the public for studying the cosmos. Back in 2007, in order to test whether humans could stay awake long enough to function on Mars (which has a 24.65-hour day), NASA added an hour to people's 24-hour day by exposing them to super bright lights for one month.

The body's natural clock is more than 24 hours a day anyways.

But is it enough to willing lay in a bed for practically 70 days straight? My body would be killing me after the first week.....

More recent research has shown that adults have a built-in day, which averages about 24 hours; indoor lighting does affect circadian rhythms; and most people attain their best-quality sleep during their chronotype-determined sleep periods. A study by Czeisler et al. at Harvard found the range for normal, healthy adults of all ages to be quite narrow: 24 hours and 11 minutes

Yep you would need to multiply that by 10 for me to apply.
