Live video call between Aquarius and Scotland

ESA astronaut Timothy Peake during a live video link from Aquarius with the UK Space Environment Conference, in Aberdeen, Scotland.


This picture was taken by ESA astronaut trainer Hervé Stevenin diving outside the Aquarius. Tim is showing Hervé to his audience via an iPad camera.


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.
