CSA Astronaut Jeremy Dives into NEEMO19
2014-09-10 - Itty Bitty problem?! @AmandaGMerriman I surface tested gummy exp night before splash. Did Andreas eat my bears?
***Note: Before splash down, Jeremy made a call on Twitter for ideas of simple science experiments ideas that he could do in Aquarius, where the atmospheric pressure is about 3X that at sea level. The gummy bear experiment was proposed by Amanda Merriman's class in Alberta, Canada. Details of this cool (and yummy!) experiment: mmemerriman.blogspot.ca/
From September 8 to 14, 2014, CSA Astronaut Jeremy Hansen takes part in NASA's NEEMO19 mission in Aquarius, an underwater habitat located about 19 metres below the surface off Key Largo in the Florida Keys. The undersea environment is the closest analogue on Earth to a gravity-weak environment like that of asteroids, the moons of Mars or Mars itself, making it the best place to test relevant exploration concepts. Jeremy is the Exploration Lead for the mission.(Credit: Canadian Space Agency)
