One more camera spot for James Ketchell: Ultimate Triathlon
November 23rd @ 10am Eastern

James Ketchell was in a bad motorcylce accident several years ago and told by his doctor that he'd have to scale back his active lifestyle. James responded by rowing solo across the Atlantic Ocean, climbing Mount Everest and cycling 18,000 miles around the world. He called it the ultimate triathlon.

Join in for a hangout from the bottom of the ocean with a ESA cavenaut/aquanaut, live from the Aquarius Reef Base!

NEEMO-21 training began on July 11th and the crew splashed down on July 21st to begin their 16 day mission. The Google Hangout will be with Matthias Maurer (European Space Agency) and he'll be discussing how astronauts train for space at the 'Inner Space Station' aka Aquarius Reef Base. He'll talk about the mission and then there will be time for Q&A afterwards.

Deployed 60 feet beneath the surface in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, Aquarius is a globally significant asset that provides unparalleled means to study the ocean, test and develop state-of-the-art undersea technology, train specialized divers and astronauts, and engage the world's imagination. At Aquarius, scientists are at the cutting edge of research on coral reefs, ocean acidification, climate change, fisheries and the overall health of the oceans.

The NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations (NEEMO) is a NASA mission that sends groups of astronauts, engineers and scientists to live in Aquarius, the world's only undersea research station, for up to three weeks at a time. The Aquarius habitat and its surroundings provide a convincing analog for space exploration.

Matthias is a cavenaut and an aquanaut, scouting new technologies for ESA astronauts as well as the European Communicator for the International Space Station (ISS) operations. He has a PhD in materials science engineering and more than 10 years of related research and development experience. He joined ESA and the European Astronaut Centre in 2010 as Crew Support and EUROCOM and steadily began to take charge of EAC evolution projects like preparing future space flight operations with new international partners and kicking off new EAC projects to extend its expertise in exploration beyond ISS.

Added photos to Rob Stewart: Sharkwater and Revolution.

Post has attachment
Rob Stewart is an award-winning biologist, photographer, conservationist and filmmaker. Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Stewart began photographing underwater when he was 13. By the age of 18, he became a scuba instructor and then moved on to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, studying in Ontario, Jamaica and Kenya.

Before making Sharkwater (2007), Stewart spent four years travelling the world as chief photographer for the Canadian Wildlife Federation's magazines. Leading expeditions to the most remote areas of the world, Stewart has logged thousands of hours underwater using the latest in camera and rebreather technologies. Stewart's highly sought after images have appeared in nearly every media form worldwide.

While on assignment to photograph sharks in the Galapagos Islands, Stewart discovered illegal longlining, indiscriminately killing sharks within the marine reserve. He tried promoting awareness through print media, but when the public didn't respond, Stewart decided to make a film to bring people closer to sharks. At the age of 22 he left his career behind and embarked on a remarkable journey over four years and 12 countries, resulting in the epic Sharkwater.

When Stewart boarded Sea Shepherd's ship, Sharkwater took a turn from a beautiful underwater film into an incredible human drama filled with corruption, espionage, attempted murder charges and mafia rings, forcing Stewart and his crew to become part of the story. During filming, Stewart encountered life threatening obstacles, including diseases such as West Nile, tuberculosis, dengue fever and flesh eating disease.

Rob's second film, Revolution was released worldwide in 2015. This groundbreaking documentary has received both critical and audience acclaim and has won a number of awards at film festivals around the world.
