RESEARCHING MARINE LIFE
NASA astronauts, scientists and technicians lived in an underwater habitat called Aquarius for 13 days (cut short due to weather) to research marine life and prepare explorers for missions to far-off planetary destinations in a project called NEEMO-15.
MORE ABOUT THE PROJECT
NEEMO is NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations, and NEEMO-15 all about practicing exploration to an asteroid. In a real mission to a distant object in space, robotic missions will send back thousands of pictures before a crew arrives. In May, a robotic submarine took thousands of pictures of the reef around the Aquarius habitat. With your help, we can prepare the crew, traverse planners, and mission directors quicker and better than they could ever do on their own!
ABOUT OUR SYSTEM
During these missions, NASA collects thousands of images of underwater life and features. We asked volunteers to help analyze those images and help us guide the scientists on their excursions around the habitat! Our system was developed using some of the most modern web-technologies, you can find the
