ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen 20 m under the sea on a simulated spacewalk, as part of the Seatest mission off the coast of Florida, USA.
The ‘Space Environment Analog for Testing EVA Systems and Training’ – Seatest – mission tests and practises ways of collecting samples during a spacewalks on future space exploration missions.
Astronauts need two hands to collect samples, and need to brace or anchor themselves to maintain their position, while also keeping their samples from flying away.
