ESA Astronaut Tim Peake riding a Submarine

Picture of ESA Astronaut Timothy Peake (@astro_timpleake) riding a Mini Sub during the NASA NEEMO 16 Mission.

 

Neemo missions train astronauts for life in space. Living and working in an

underwater base is similar to space stations. During a 10-day mission ESA

astronaut Tim Peake and five crewmates lived in cramped conditions, performed

‘waterwalks’ and even drove an underwater submarine.

  

The underwater base is almost 20 m under the sea off the coast of Florida.
