Disembarking from the boat in Key Largo are Otto Rutten and Marc Reagan, participating in the NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations 6 (NEEMO-6) mission at the NOAA Aquarius underwater station offshore. Rutten is director for the National Underwater Research Center; Reagan is mission lead. The NEEMO-6 mission involves exposing an astronaut/scientist crew to a real mission experience in an extreme environment to prepare for future space flight. Spacewalk-like diving excursions and field-tests on a variety of biomedical equipment are designed to help astronauts living aboard the International Space Station. The NEEMO-6 team comprises astronaut John Herrington, mission commander, astronauts Doug Wheelock and Nick Patrick, and biomedical engineer Tara Ruttley. To prepare for their 10-day stay, the team had dive training twice a day at the Life Support Buoy, anchored above Aquarius.
