Space Brothers episode 81
I’m going to keep this week’s Space Brothers post short again. I fail to be sufficiently motivated by this show these days, even though it’s starting to get interesting again. Yes, it’s still about training, but at least it’s different.
I’m going to address to small points in my post. First would’ve obviously be Hibito’s road to recovery. He seems to take it very serious and is determined to go to outer space again someday. That’s a lot better than those episodes with him being in Russia with that strange family. It’s seems a lot more serious now that he realizes that he has something to lose.
Secondly and most obviously; Mutta’s NEEMO training, also known as NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations. Mutta has to train roughly twenty meters under water for days on end. It supposedly simulates the moon’s environment. People are weightless underwater and can’t get oxygen without an oxygen tank, just like on the moon. I like where this is going. It really feels as though were getting close to an actual space mission that involves Mutta.
