Training began on the actions after landing the descent vehicle of the Soyuz spacecraft on the water surface (photo)



Training began on the actions after landing the descent vehicle of the Soyuz spacecraft on the water surface.

During the training, two types of training are performed: “long” and “short”. “Long” training – the descent vehicle is on the water and we need to change clothes inside the descent capsule from the Sokol spacesuit into flight and heat-shielding suits, then the Trout overalls and evacuate from the ship.

We leave the capsule after changing clothes, taking with us a portable emergency stock. Then we work out the interaction with the search and rescue service, give light signals and evacuate aboard the rescuers.

A “short” training consists in time limits for the actions performed, in connection with the detection of a hypothetical “leak” in the descent apparatus through which water enters.
