NASA uses seabed as underwater lab

NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston recently announced that they will be participating in the NASA Extreme Environment Missions Operation (NEEMO) mission which is aimed at simulating conditions on other planets, just in case the earth is no longer a habitable place for most humans save for the rich and elite who can afford so when the apocalypse arrives. This time round, the ocean’s floor is the venue of choice, where it will function as a method to simulate the low-gravity conditions astronauts experience on another planet’s surface. This would give the future crew a better idea when interacting with the lander, rover, robotic arms, and other gear on a distant planet. Hopefully no one else conducts any underwater nuclear bomb tests within the vicinity of the lab, eh?
