ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen discusses the fourth day of NEEMO 19 training with crewmates Canadian Space Agency astronaut Jeremy Hansen and ESA astronaut trainer Hervé Stevenin.
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.
