- You can make thousands of dollars by donating some time or body parts to science.
- But these procedures are not all painless, and not everyone can participate.

NASA has recruited volunteers to spend two months in bed.

The 24 people selected spent 60 days laying down, with all experiments, meals, and leisure activities done while horizontal.
The experiment, however, is just one of many ways you can get paid for helping out with scientific research. If you want to aid the science community (and potentially save some lives) there are some unconventional yet potentially lucrative steps you can take.
Below is a short list, though be warned: these strategies aren’t all easy money.
