NASA will pay people to self-isolate for new study

If you think you can handle self-isolating for a few more months, maybe it’s time to consider joining NASA’s new study.

NASA is currently looking for participants for their new study to develop methods and technologies to mitigate and counteract potential problems on future spaceflight missions.

According to NASA, they are preparing for its next spaceflight simulation. They are seeking healthy participants to live together with a small crew in isolation for eight months in Moscow, Russia. They said that participants of this study will experience environmental aspects similar to those what astronauts experience on future missions to Mars.

NASA says, “The research will be conducted to study the effects of isolation and confinement as participants work to successfully complete their simulated space mission.”

However, this study is only open for U.S. citizens only. It would be great to be paid to self-isolate, though!
