Calling all couch potatoes! NASA is now accepting applications for your dream job.

It is recruiting volunteers to lie in bed for 70 days to research the effects of microgravity on the human body, according to the Daily Mail . Participants will be allowed to have visitors and also access to the internet and TV. 

If the lying in bed part in the name of science wasn't enough to convince you to sign up, perhaps this will: NASA will pay volunteers $5,000 a month to take part in this research. 

The study is being conducted at the Johnson Space Center in Houston.
