Science in Seconds - NEEMO

Science in Seconds Know Everything Rumours - NEEMO Brit Trogen: Deep‑sea exploration is entering a new wave of popularity. And while James Cameron may have dabbled in the depths of the Mariana Trench, no one is making more waves than NASA's aquanauts. NEEMO stands for NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations, the NASA mission that sends astronauts, engineers and scientists to live in the world's only undersea research station, fittingly called Aquarius. The station is located just outside of Key Largo in the Florida Keys, 62 feet underwater, near the deep coral reefs. NEEMO allows crew members to work for up to three weeks at a time in the underwater station, conducting research and living simulations in what is the closest analogue to space exploration found on our planet. It's a high‑pressure job. The NEEMO team uses a technique called saturation diving to enable them to stay underwater for great lengths of time, allowing their bodies to become completely saturated with dissolved gas. The crew members then practice collecting samples, conducting research, and acclimating to the very alien environment of the deep sea. They even do practice runs of procedures that may someday be used on the surface of asteroids. In other words, Armageddon underwater. But if working deep underwater doesn't float your boat, NASA is planning further steps in the mission that will allow their explorers to visit other extreme space environments, like near‑Earth asteroids, or the moon of Mars. Until then, we'll have to settle for exploring the hidden depths of our own planet, which are in many ways just as mysterious.
