Mission Aquarius: Behind The Scenes Video Filmed at the last underwater sea lab in the world

 Go behind the scenes during NASA's NEEMO 16 mission and watch the One World One Ocean crew shoot with multiple formats - including IMAX, an underwater 3D RED Epic, DSLRs and GoPro cameras. Filmed at the last underwater sea lab in the world - Aquarius Reef Base in Key Largo, Florida.

All 16 NEEMO missions have been at Aquarius because astronauts can live inside America's "inner space station" and work on the ocean floor all day without surfacing. The ocean environment combined with unlimited time to work at depth and living inside an undersea base is closest analog to learning how to work on lunar, planetary and even asteroid surfaces.

Unfortunately, this may be NEEMO's last mission due federal budget cuts at NOAA, which is eliminating Aquarius from the 2013 budget.
