At the end of their third day of living and working underwater, the NEEMO 19 crew are treated to a selection of ESA's space food for their evening meal. The food has been specially developed by ESA and French space agency, CNES, for consumption on the International Space Station.
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.
