NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) Project

The NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) Project is a cooperative effort between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Undersea Research Center (NURC), and the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. NEEMO was developed by astronaut training specialists to utilize an undersea research habitat, known as Aquarius as a multi-objective mission analog for long-duration space flight. NEEMO missions provide scientists a research platform to study crew behavior, habitability, and space analog life sciences in extreme environments. The objectives of each NEEMO mission varies and consist of space mission related activities such as EVAs (also known as extra vehicular activities), in-habitat science and research, and educational, public outreach, and media events.
