Comex research vessel Minibex that housed mission control for the Apollo 11 Under The Sea mission.
ESA astronaut Jean-François Clervoy and ESA astronaut instructor Hervé Stevenin slipped into the roles of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin for an underwater simulation of the historic mission to the Moon.
