If you're looking for an excuse to stay in bed, scientists are looking for people to take on the challenge for 60 days. In doing so, you can make $19,000.

According to the New York Post, a group including NASA and other researchers is conducting the study in Germany.

"Volunteers will be seated at a slight incline so that their legs are slightly higher than their heads, reducing blood flow to the extremities, thus causing muscle deterioration," New York Post says.

The study is meant to help scientists learn more about what happens to muscles while astronauts are in space for a long period of time.

They're still looking for participants, who can sign up here.

According to translated reviews from participants and workers in other parts of this study, the team is constantly looking after your well-being and cooking nutritious food for your body. One participant said it was easier than they imagined and didn't get bored during their time in bed.

The study will reportedly take place between September and December 2019.
