Inspired by a recent CAVES video release, ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen’s latest video diary is about CAVES photography – made to look deceptively easy by the videography team that accompanies the CAVES team during their underground training.
Held each year, CAVES teaches astronauts to explore the underground system of the Sa Grutta caves in Sardinia, Italy, as a team, delving deep underground to perform scientific experiments as well as chart and document their activities.
The CAVES course – Cooperative Adventure for Valuing and Exercising human behaviour and performance Skills – is run by the European Astronaut Centre to simulate spaceflight. Seasoned International Space Station astronauts as well as rookies participate in the course and share experiences while learning how to improve leadership, teamwork, decision-making and problem-solving skills.
