Guided Tour

Neutral Buoyancy Lab at Sonny Carter Training Facility

The Houston section of the AIAA is proud to announce a guided tour of the Neutral Buoyancy Lab at Sonny Carter Training Facility.
The Neutral Buoyancy Lab in Houston allows astronauts to train for EVA (extra-vehicular or outside the space vehicle) activities approximating weightless conditions, and allows crews to simulate assembly and repair tasks under conditions similar to what is encountered in space. At 40 feet deep, over 200 feet long and 100 feet wide, the facility is large enough for two simultaneous simulations, with space-suited crews assisted by diver/trainers.

AIAA membership is not required.

If you require JSC badging, allow 3 days for citizens and approximately 3 weeks for non-citizens.
