NEEMO 19: Training Day 6
In this update from ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen, the NEEMO 19 crew checkout the decompression chamber - for use in case they need to evacuate the Aquarius underwater habitat in a hurry.
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.
