Modern technology gives us many things.

"Moon" rocks and spaceships in NASA pool

Pριν πατήσουν στο , οι μελλοντικοί αστροναύτες της NASA they will be asked to walk (in) the water.

Από το 1992, στο περίφημο στήριο Ουδέτερης Πλευστότητας (NBL) κοντά στο Διαστημικό Κέντρο Johnson της NASA, εκπαιδεύονται εκατοντάδες αστροναύτες.

All ISS crewmembers in training spend many hours in the huge, indoor pool, where they gradually become accustomed to performing tasks within breathing distance of trained divers.

NASA is aiming to send astronauts to the moon, and part of the underwater facility is being reconfigured to accommodate preparations for the new mission.

Κοντά στο τμήμα εκπαίδευσης των πληρωμάτων του ISS, ένας «σεληνιακός κόσμος» αναπτύσσεται με προσθήκη άμμου και ογκόλιθων (φυσικών και τεχνητών) στο δάπεδο της πισίνας. Πρωτότυπες διαστημικές στολές και σεληνιακά ρίχνονται και δοκιμάζονται στο νερό.

Even unusual (for Earthlings) moonlit conditions are being simulated underwater as V2X experiments with the light that will bathe NASA astronauts at the moon's south pole in 2025 when Artemis 3 lands on the moon .

As NASA expands the Artemis program to the moon, the agency expects companies to become interested in deals relatively quickly. Already the program (CLPS) foresees the shipment of cargo and vehicles from this year.

V2X expects demand to grow quickly and wants to be ready with the underwater lunar simulation for anyone who needs to train for spacewalks in a tightly controlled environment.

«Όλοι πρέπει να είναι απόλυτα και συνεχώς συγκεντρωμένοι στην ασφάλεια», δήλωσε στο .com ο Clay Tomlinson, υπεύθυνος του προγράμματος V2X,.

"It's something very, very important (….) if you think about the astronauts in training, we provide them with air. We provide them with water."

On the surface of the pool, there are other useful tests: V2X participated in a simulated moon landing of the Artemis 1 mission, after years of practice. His mission not only did he send the Orion spacecraft, unmanned, around the moon for the first time, but he also had a flawless landing thanks to years of training and preparation.
