Cosmonauts Getting Ready for a Flight

Posted on March 26, 2016 by team


Space suit blowdown is carried out prior to each flight several hours before the launch. Journalists and relatives come to see how space suits of cosmonauts are proofed for impermeability. Then they have some time to talk to their families.

Before leaving the hotel, the cosmonauts sign on doors of their rooms with black markers. It’s a tradition kept since the Soviet time.

To the music of a popular Russian space song the crew come out of the training center and get in the bus to head to the cosmodrome.

A specially equipped bus transports the main crew, another one carries backup crew members. The buses are followed by the police.

    So awesome! I would love to see a spaceship launch in real.

    So what is their mission, and how long will they be gone?
