Sleep experts say that sleeping seven to nine hours per night is ideal for a healthy adult. With a good nightâs sleep, you can refresh your brain, rest and recover your muscles, and keep your immune system strong. Still, that didnât stop Russian scientists in the 1940s from discovering a gas mixture that they believed would eradicate the need for humans to sleep. To test the solution, researchers gathered a few enemies of the Russian State and locked them in a chamber for a 30-day period while they pumped this gas into the chamber.
The results? Letâs just say that researchers observed more than they would have thought possibleâ¦
The Experiment Begins…
The subjects were kept in a sealed environment so that the researchers wouldn’t be exposed to the gas, andÂ the prisoners only had microphones to communicate with them. They were provided with books, a toilet, running water, enough foodÂ to last each of them a full month, and a cot with no bedding.
