Why CAVES Astrobiology

NASA's director of Astrobiology Institue, Penelope Boston, explains why caves are interesting to astrobiologists.

Caves are little studied areas and can resemble environments found on other planets. Caves exist on the Moon and Mars and could be used by astronauts for shelter when we explore our Solar System

ESA's CAVES course Cooperative Adventure for Valuing and Exercising human behaviour and performance Skills is a two-week course that prepares astronauts to work safely and effectively in multicultural teams in an environment where safety is critical in caves.
