NASA will begin its training program for a team compound by Americans, Japanese and Canadian astronauts. The training will take place in the Atlantic near from the coast of Florida.

The mission

The mission consists in the exploration of an asteroid and the main problem is that asteroids do not have attraction, the gravity is very low, almost nonexistent. So the explorer cannot walk on it. This is why astronauts trains in this environment which is similar to the one in water.

Bill Todd the project manager expresses that: “The mission involves a complex choreography between the submarines and divers living and working in the underwater base”.

According to Barack Obama the mission could perform in 2025.
