How astronauts are prepared for flights

Perfect health, strong psyche and super-resistance. Whoever dreams of joining the Cosmonaut Training Center will have to go through a selection process. And then - theory and practice in the most interesting simulators in the world.

The conditions are as similar as possible to the real ones. The Soyuz model simulator tests everyone's strength. It teaches the ship's captain and two flight attendants not only to act harmoniously according to instructions, but also to react correctly to unpleasant surprises: to face emergency situations. The sensation of the elbow is as important here as the training of muscle memory.
