JSC2006-E-13561 (5 April 2006) --- Astronauts Nicole P. Stott and Ronald J. Garan welcome a fellow aquanaut arriving with camera in the wet porch of the Aquarius undersea habitat. The wet porch is the entrance and exit for the underwater laboratory off the coast of Key Largo, Florida. Similar to an upside-down empty glass submerged in water, it uses atmospheric pressure to keep the ocean out of the habitat. In the foreground, wet suits drip as they dry out. Stott and Garan are crew members on the ninth NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO). NEEMO 9 is a cooperative project of NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the University of North Carolina at Wilmington (UNCW) and the Centre for Minimal Access Surgery in Canada.
