Abstract

In the absence of short-term spaceflight opportunities, astronauts find themselves involved in long term flights as their first exposure to space operations, within multicultural crews with which they have rarely spent more than a few consecutive hours together. This has prompted space agencies to identify opportunities for terrestrial analogue training events which foster expeditionary behavior and increase operational safety and efficiency. These training events shall recreate situations that are spaceflight analogue in terms of perception of risk, crew composition, isolation, confinement and at the same time provide a real opportunity for spaceflight-like operations, science, equipment testing, and exploration, in preparation of future planetary endeavours.
In this paper we analyze the specific case of safety issues and progression techniques training in underground and underwater environments employed in terrestrial analogues for astronaut training (e.g. ESA CAVES), and the similarities and differences with extra vehicular activity operations, and how training for similar operations allows to instill a modus operandi that promotes safe and effective behavior.
