JSC2013-E-030843 (10 May 2013) --- European Space Agency astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti, in a ground version of the NASA extravehicular mobility unit space suit, is about to go under the water in the Johnson Space Center's Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory. Her session, in which she was joined by NASA astronaut Terry Virts (out of frame), was to evaluate proper procedures and techniques in support of a possible weekend space walk by two astronauts on the International Space Station to trouble-shoot an ammonia leak issue, discovered earlier in the week. A SCUBA-equipped diver is in the water to assist the astronauts. Photo credit: NASA
