ESA CAVES 2014 in 3D


ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano and speleologist Francesco Sauro take us underground during the ESA CAVES 2014 course – Cooperative Adventure for Valuing and Exercising human behaviour and performance Skills.

ESA’s underground training course is all about getting astronauts ready for space. One aspect is the three-dimensional world under our feet – so watch this video in 3D.

Moving in a cave, either horizontally using cables and tethers or vertically with climbing equipment, requires continuous attention, skilful use of tools and a healthy trust in the equipment. Underground ‘cavewalks’ are similar to spacewalks because they require safety tethering, 3D orientation, staying clear of dangerous areas, and careful planning and teamwork.
