NASA is inviting applications for a programme where it will pay volunteers for spending eight months in isolation. The research is being done to study the effects of isolation and confinement as participants work to complete simulated space missions.
Participants will be staying in a lab located in Moscow, and they will experience environmental aspects similar to those astronauts are expected to experience on future missions to Mars that will have crew members from different nations
NASA said, “As many around the world are staying at home in response to the global coronavirus pandemic, NASA is preparing for its next spaceflight simulation study. Results from ground-based missions like this help NASA prepare for the real-life challenges of space exploration and provide important scientific data to solve some of these problems and to develop countermeasures”
The ground based ‘SIRIUS-20’ mission will help NASA learn more about the physiological and psychological effects of isolation and confinement on humans
Participants will be compensated, and there are varying levels of pay depending on whether you are associated with NASA.
