Roscosmos told how they prepare future cosmonauts for flights. The duration of the preparatory program is two years.
Such data in the form of infographics were published today by the press service of the state corporation.
The two-year program is designed for 4085 hours. It seems that the future conquerors of space have no time to rest, because during the two years of preparation for vacation they are given only 520 hours, that is, less than 22 days.
At the end of the training, cadets must pass final exams, for which 40 hours are allotted.
In the near future, four new candidates are to begin general space training. At the end of last month, the Interdepartmental Commission recommended that the Cosmonaut Training Center enroll them in the space detachment. These lucky ones who passed the open competition were Sergey Irtuganov, Harutyun Kiviryan, Alexander Kolyabin and Sergey Teteryatnikov. As in the previous recruitment, there were no girls among the candidates.
Among other things, future cosmonauts will undergo a survival course after landing if they cannot be quickly evacuated. After all, a spacecraft can land anywhere on our planet, including in a deserted impassable area where wild animals live.
