19 April 2006Hi Erin.
Greetings from the NEEMO 9 crew spending the last night of our 18 day mission aboard the Aquarius habitat 60 feet below the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Key Largo. We were very interested to read about your sleep study adventure. Seems like a pretty extreme environment that you’ve been living in for the past couple months as well. We’ve had a mission filled with successful research associated with telemedicine and lunar surface exploration ---- we know that the research you’ve been participating in will also help support future space exploration. We’re thankful for all you’ve been doing and we wish you all the best!
