Cave diving as an appropriate high-fidelity analog to study behavioural health in space

Cave diving as an appropriate high-fidelity analog to study behavioural health in space

Aquanauta.space is a project aiming to answer if cave diving could be regarded as high-fidelity analog t space exploration. The project studies the adverse effects of isolation, confinement, darkness, extreme environments, threat among cave divers working in underwater caves and mines.

Our rationale to organise such high fidelity mission simulations are: The findings, particularly the behavioural findings, obtained from low and mid-fidelity space analogies and simulations may not be reliable and valid, and skills and knowledge learned from these contexts may not be transferable to real manned space missions. Further, astronauts regularly train as divers in large artificial pools, where they can explore the effects of microgravity and practice specific protocols and skills later carried out or used on the International Space Station. Astronauts also often train together in caves in order to get used to confined and isolated contexts and preparing for missions in the Moon’s lava tubes. Despite significant efforts to understand, human factors in extreme contexts remain understudied and are usually mitigated with meticulous sampling and training processes. In the not too far future, human space exploration will impose new needs where the human factors may not be “factored out” so easily.

In our missions, crews of four to six cave divers, or ‘aquanautas’ live in a camp/habitat underground that is connected to a diverse tunnel system completely underwater. In our work, we focus on the effects isolation, confinement, darkness, and microgravity on humans, and to understand how the systems and solutions we design may benefit teams in conducting meaningful work in these extreme environments.

Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city is uniquely inspirational, not only for its fabled loveliness, but also for its associations – past and present – with innovation, creativity, discovery and progress.

It was here chloroform was first used as an anaesthetic and the founder of penicillin was born. Dolly the sheep was cloned at the University of Edinburgh’s Roslin Institute. The first ‘bionic’ hand – a powered prosthetic with articulating fingers – was developed by a spin-out company from the city’s Princess Margaret Rose Hospital, and the fastest-selling video game of all time – Grand Theft Auto V, by Rockstar North was developed!

Edinburgh has great transport connections too; home to Scotland’s busiest airport which serves 188 destinations worldwide, rail links which run all over the UK, easy access from Scotland’s motorway network and public transport in the city itself is simple with a plentiful supply of buses, trams and taxis.

There’s plenty to do after dark with lots of unique venues to experience a full flavour of Scotland’s culture. We have partnered with Convention Edinburgh and all of our Extreme Medicine delegates will receive the Edinburgh Rewards Card with their conference badge, opening a door to special offers from a selection of bars, restaurants, shops and tour operators.

Our conference venue, Dynamic Earth is a 5 star visitor experience, inviting guests to take a journey through time to witness the story of planet Earth. Dynamic Earth offers synergy within a global health context which match our own sustainable, community minded focus.
