- Intravehicular Activity. An astronaut puts on a self-enclosed environment suit, but instead of leaving the Habitat, uses it inside.
IVA suit preparation
Moving around the Habitat
When entering or leaving a module, ensure that opening the door will not pose a risk to the other Astronauts. Mission Control will inform you as to whether or not it is safe and what the other astronauts must do to ensure they are safe. Try to limit unnecessary movement to avoid overheating.
If you are performing an IVA, it is due to unforeseen circumstances. There may be loose, live wires. A module may have been depressurized. You may need to enter an area full of high radiation. Follow Mission Control's instructions carefully. Don't worry, your EVA suit should protect you from all hazards. If communication with Mission Control is broken, try to re-establish it as soon as possible.
