JSC2003-E-45587 (28 June 2003) --- Inside the Aquarius research habitat, a curious astronaut Clayton C. Anderson smiles as he is greeted by an equally curious school of marine fish on the other side of the habitat viewing port in waters off the Florida Keys. The NEEMO 5 mission was headed toward the final 24 hours of underwater research and evaluation. The crew spent 14 days June 16-29, 2003, in the undersea habitat owned by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, testing its fidelity as an analog for long-duration space flight.
