My name is Georgios Gregoriadis. I am an experienced physicist with a strong background in Astronomy. I graduated from the University of Ioannina in 2002. I am a private teacher and owner of this website.

Spacewalking is a critical part of a space mission and a rather difficult yet intriguing activity for the crew. It is also an activity that needs proper and advanced preparation for the astronauts to be able to perform it safely while being in the galactic sphere and outside their spacecraft. So, where does this whole spacewalk thing takes place on earth? It all happens in a specially organized place, called Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL).

Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL)

The Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL) is operated by NASA and it is where the simulating and the improvement of spacewalk procedures happen as well as the testing of the equipment and every other component necessary to conduct a mission successfully.

The NBL is located at the Sonny Carter Training Facility, near the Johnson Space Center in HoustonTexas. It is a training facility where neutral buoyancy is created and thus experienced by the space crew of upcoming galactic missions.

A large neutral buoyancy indoor pool is the central feature of the establishment along with other specialized equipment that aims to test and seal the success of a space flight.

The main goal of the creation of such a center is to train astronauts in an environment that simulates space’s microgravity environment along with the appropriate suits they were during a space flight. Astronauts perform simulated EVA tasks, meaning a number of activities done by them while being outside their spacecraft beyond the Earth’s atmosphere.

When it all began

It was not until the late 90’s that NASA started to consider replacing the previous neutral buoyancy training center, called Weightless Environment Training Facility (WETF).

The WETF was built at Johnson Space Center and had been for a long period of time the training place for many astronauts. However, the pool of that facility was way too small to hold mock-ups of space station components and other alike equipment, intended for the Space Station Freedom or the International Space Station.

The establishment was initially owned by McDonnel Douglas before NASA purchased it from him at the beginning of the 90s. NASA reformed it to create a neutral buoyancy training center in 1995.

The facility’s characteristics

The pool tank measures 202 feet in length (62 m), 102 feet in width (31 m), and 40 feet in depth (12 m), while it can hold about 6.2 million US gallons of water (about 23 million litres). At first, it was programmed to be on Johnson Space Center property and was planned to size 235 feet (72 m) by 135 feet (41 m) with a depth of 60 feet (18 m). For the sake of decreasing its cost, NASA decided to make it smaller to the size mentioned above and it was built inside an already existing structure.

The pool is divided into two sections in order to permit the execution of parallel training sessions. Its water is recycled every 19.6 hours and is monitored in a way to maintain a steady temperature of 82°–88° Fahrenheit (28o -31o Celsius), for eliminating the danger of hypothermia for the training staff that also dives with the trainees. The water is also being chemically treated to control contaminant growth while minimizing the potential corrosion effect on the equipment.

The facility contains full-size replicas of International Space Station (ISS) modules and payloads, along with visiting vehicles such as the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the European Space Agency ATV, the SpaceX Dragon, and the Orbital Sciences Corporation Cygnus.

NBL also contains a hyperbaric chamber and an altitude chamber to treat any divers’ diseases and simulate physiological flight effects respectively.

Space missions that involve human crew members demand in-depth, exact planning, and preparation. In Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory, astronauts learn to experience spacewalking in zero gravity at its closest. It is one of the most crucial parts of the whole complex space exploration endeavor. They may not achieve real weightlessness but the facility offers them a concrete spacewalking foundation to prepare them in the best possible way for the extravehicular activities they will conduct in real zero gravity. 

 

NBL is that place on earth where you can spacewalk without having to take off the ground. Literally.

With the private Ax-1 mission to the ISS, a new milestone in the new era of commercial space flight was set out from Florida on Friday morning. Ax-1 stands for Axiom-1, Axiom Space's first crewed mission. The firm has big intentions to replace the ISS and run Axiom Station (the company’s commercial space station) in orbit which is why the mission is known as; the Axiom mission.

 

Ax-1 Mission Takes Off

On April 8, 2022, at 11:17 a.m. EDT (1517 GMT), a SpaceX Falcon 9 spacecraft launched Ax-1, an Axiom mission from Houston-based business Axiom Space, from NASA's Kennedy Space Center on Florida's Space Coast. During the mission, no government space flyers were included as part of the crew. Instead, the crew’s spacecraft flyers were all privately booked to take off. It's the world's first entirely private spaceflight mission to the orbital lab.

The weather was excellent for the launch of the Ax-1 mission, and the sky looked simply stunning, so no harm was done or expected. Former NASA astronaut Michael Lopez-Allegria pilots a SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule at the vehicle's apex. A team of private crew members is on board for a 10-day mission on the ISS. All team members have paid for the seats in which, one is a retired astronaut while the others are space flyers. There are a total of four crew members as space flyers on the board. Although the four astronauts have worked as investors and entrepreneurs, they intend to undertake a wide range of experiments, from biomedical research related to cancer to conducting a study regarding self-assembly robots.

The first stage of the Falcon 9 flew for the sixth time on Ax-1. The rocket also made its fifth landing, landing precisely 9.5 minutes after launch on the SpaceX drone ship. The drone ship is known as; “A Shortfall of Gravitas” which is stationed/located in the Atlantic Ocean.

 

Meet The Space Flyers Of Axiom Mission

Michael López-Alegra, Axiom's VP is a retired NASA astronaut and is allowed to operate Ax-1 for this mission without paying for his seat. Other than the main pilot, the other two pilots are Larry Connor, Eytan Stibbe, and Mark Pathy. Eytan and Mark are regarded as mission experts whenever it comes to space flights. This is the reason why they were selected, as it was the first-ever private mission to land on a different space station titled: “Axiom Space Station” so the pick of crew members had to be the best one. The best part is, all the three crew members have paid for their seats themselves except López-Alegra, as he didn’t pay for his seat. Instead, he became a guide for the other crew members to do so, and how to space fly successfully during the Axiom Misson. Pathy is the CEO and head of the Canadian sustainable investing business “MARVIK”, while Stibbe is a founding member of the Vital Capital Impact investment fund. He has served as a former pilot in the Israel air force and is known to be the second-ever Israeli to ever fly a spacecraft. Before Stibbe, Ramon was the first-ever astronaut to fly a spacecraft however sadly, he died in the Columbia space shuttle disaster back in 2003. After the tragic incident, Stibbie alongside Ramon’s family co-founded Ramon Foundation, which is a charity foundation to pay honor to Ramon so that he can be remembered forever for his work.  

All of these space travelers are not just specialists, but also incredibly successful businessmen. This is the reason why they were able to pay for the seat. According to experts, it is estimated that the cost per seat of the Ax-1 mission is around $55 million. However, López-Alegra has mentioned during a discussion with the media, that the three crew members who have paid for their seats are not space tourists. Instead, they are space flyers. The reason why he mentioned this is because many space travelers have paid for their seats just to witness the special moment of flying into space.

The crew members who were launched into space on April 8th, 2022 are set to stay there for about 10 days. For the 10-day frame, the crew has a variety of activities planned, including working on 25 different scientific experiments. As per the insides, Stibbe is using a "brain headgear" from the Israeli firm “Brain.Space” as part of his research work. This experiment is one of many that Stibbe is doing on behalf of the Ramon Foundation to see how one’s brain behaves in space. Also as per Hassmann, the Ax-1 team's research would look into aging, heart health, stem cells, and other areas respectively.
