Astronaut training: Surviving at Sea Tour

Tour Itinerary:

   Day one - Arrival in Moscow. You will be accommodated in a four-star Hotel together with our guide-interpreter. After dinner you can get rest, or go for an evening walk around the capital of Russia.

   Day two - in the morning you take off for the south of Russia, to the Adler Airport. After the transfer to and accommodation in the hotel (Sochi) you will receive a general briefing concerning training in sea survival, as well as take the theoretical-practical lesson in the use of an emergency supply.

   Day three - early in the morning you are taken to a special ship. After you are accommodated in one of the cabins of the ship, the instructors of the Cosmonaut Training Center will show and explain to you: how to use the light emergency signaling devices correctly (to signal, to light a flare pot, to fire a flare); how to put on the Forel hydrosuit; and how to exit a Soyuz spacecraft descent module capsule quickly. After lunch and a medical check, you will experience a so-called "dry" training in a descent module capsule on the deck of the ship.

   Day four - After a medical check, you are ready to spend several hours in a descent module capsule floating in the sea, together with Russian cosmonauts and foreign astronauts. Your task is not only to survive, but also to do your best in order to be discovered as soon as possible. Afterward this ship's crew will congratulate you, and give you a certificate on having passed the sea training in survival and rescue.

   Day five - Transfer to Adler Airport. Flight back to Moscow.

   Day six - Check out and departure day from Moscow. Your guide-interpreter will accompany you to the Sheremetyevo International Airport.


Astronaut training: Surviving at Sea Tour

An extreme type of space training is the sea training for survival and rescue. Together with Russian cosmonauts and foreign astronauts, you will spend several unforgettable hours in a Soyuz spacecraft descent module capsule in the warm water of the Black Sea. Although the sea training may seem simple and easy, not even each candidate to become a cosmonaut can boast of having performed this training.
