- NASA recently conducted underwater research, since the environment provides some useful similarities to working in space, using off the shelf technology, developed by Thought Technology, the worlds largest manufacturer of biofeedback equipment.
NASA researcher William Toscano described the mission, "Our project was called Neemo-9. It was 22 days long, with 2 astronauts participating. They wore the FlexComp Infiniti™ system for three of the mission days. What we were looking was the effect of isolation, workload and fatigue on the individuals. We're using the Neemo-9 environment as an analog of a space station. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6V4XDOOSrn8
