SEATEST Mission Day 5

September 30, 2013

Final day of the SEATEST mission! We have to go through a 16 hour decompression process to slowly lower the pressure in the habitat back to normal, before we can return to the surface. Take a tour of our underwater toilet while we wait.

We are an international team of astronauts from NASA, ESA, and JAXA participating in an underwater space analog mission at the Aquarius Reef Base in Florida, in order to train for our upcoming space missions and evaluate EVA techniques.
