    Updated:

    CENTRAL FLORIDA - If you like to lie in bed all day, there's a job for you.

    NASA is looking for volunteers for a bed-rest study, and they'll get paid $18,000.

    Here's the catch: participants can't get up for 70 days.

    They can read books, play on the computer and even watch television -- but all while lying down.

    The purpose of the study is to research the effects of long-term spaceflight on the human body.
