ESA team leader for research Jennifer Ngo-Anh speaks to press during the launch of the first joint long-term bed rest study between ESA and USA space agency NASA set to investigate the potential of artificial gravity in mitigating the physiological effects of spaceflight.

Scientists believe adding artificial gravity could be key to keeping astronauts healthy during longer missions.

If humans are going to live in or travel through space for a prolonged time, it's important to understand what that can do to the human body. After your 60-day nap you'll be required to stick around for another month to be studied as you recover from your two months in bed. They'll even put you in a gravity chamber, and spin you around.

"Bedrest has always been used to mimic some of the changes our bodies experience in the weightlessness of space".

The new test is being conducted at the Germans Aerospace Center's (DLR) facility called-envihab.

In addition, the study will use a short-arm centrifuge as a way of re-creating gravity for participants, allowing scientists to study the potential of artificial gravity in mitigating the effects of spaceflight.

I've practiced with him some and I've been highly impressed. "I'm not surprised that I'm sitting here back in the final again". Auger-Aliassime was a qualifier at the tournament and entered the event ranked No. 57 in the world rankings.


While astronauts now stick to an intense exercise regimen to stay strong, the bed rest Study will for the first time investigate the use of a so-called short-arm human centrifuge to generate artificial gravity and force blood back in the extremities, CNET noted.

However, as an innovative solution to the zero gravity problem, scientists are looking at artificial gravity for addressing health issues.

The study runs across 89 days: 15 days of familiarisation, 60 days of bed rest and then 14 days of rest and astronaut rehab to get you back to normal life after two months off.

Plus, as this experiment is happening at the German Aerospace Centre in Cologne you need to be able to speak German and be over 18.

By observing people reclining for 60 days with their heads 6 degrees lower than their bodies, researchers can develop strategies to help astronauts confronting similar challenges in space.
