ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen reports on the third training day at the NEEMO 19 campaign in Key Largo, Florida. Andreas heads underwater with his NEEMO 19 crewmate Canadian Space Agency astronaut Jeremy R. Hansen, to practice emergency procedures.
NEEMO – NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations – trains astronauts for life in space. Living and working in an underwater base is similar to being on a space station.
NEEMO’s underwater habitat off Florida acts as makeshift a space base for astronauts to make regular ‘waterwalks’ in full scuba gear. Both underwater missions plan sorties for the astronauts to simulate spacewalks.
