Longueuil, Quebec, September 10, 2013 – Canadian Space Agency (CSA) Astronaut Jeremy Hansen, along with an international astronaut crew, will live and work underground in caves, during a six-day training program. The European Space Agency's (ESA) Cooperative Adventure for Valuing and Exercising human behavior and performance Skills (CAVES) will take place from September 16 to 27 in Sardinia, Italy.

They will work in confined spaces, with minimal privacy, technical challenges and limited equipment and supplies for hygiene and comfort - just like in space...
