In an attempt to recreate the effects of spaceflight on the human body, researchers with the European Space Agency plan to have 12 volunteers, all men, spend a total of 60 days simply lying in bed.

The experiment is set to debut this coming September 9, when the first study participants will assume position in the carefully calibrated beds that will be their home for many weeks to come.

The investigation will be carried out at the German Aerospace Center's Envihab facility in Cologne, Germany, where scientists will get to control the temperature, the air humidity, and even how much daylight the volunteers are exposed to throughout the duration of the study.
