Training for spacewalks underwater in gigantic pools like NASA’s Neutral Buoyancy Lab or NBL, in Houston, was the focus of a March 19 What's New in Aerospace? presentation televised on NASA Television from the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum in Washington. The program featured a live interview with spacewalk trainers from beneath the surface of the 40-foot-deep NBL facility. Water is uniquely suited for spacewalk training because it provides extended periods of simulated microgravity. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the first two spacewalks in history – March 18, 1965 by Soviet cosmonaut Aleksei Leonov, followed by U.S. astronaut Edward White a few months later on June 3, during the Gemini IV mission.
