Budapest hosts the Molnar Janos cave system. It is the largest readily accessible submerged cave system in Europe and its geothermal waters provide a constant year round environment. The size, location and environment of the cave offer numerous potential uses for space applications including: astronaut long duration training, EVA simulation, in orbit assembly testing and deployment testing. This activity will assess the possibility, practicality, setup/installation cost, running cost and business case for each of these potential applications. It will then produce a development and exploitation plan of the cave system.
