Cosmonaut from Primorye Elena Serova successfully passed another exam in preparation for the flight to the ISS

The main and backup crews of the 41 / 42 long expedition to the International Space Station (ISS) continue to pass the examination session. After successfully passing the cosmonauts and astronauts will begin a comprehensive examination training, which will summarize the training of crews in Star City. About this reports DV-ROSS.

Roskosmos cosmonauts Alexander Samokutyaev and Elena Serova (a native of Primorsky Krai) passed the exam on the TC-18 simulator. This simulator, located on the basis of the ZF-18 centrifuge, is intended for practicing the skills of controlling the descent of a spacecraft from orbit in manual mode in case of failure of the automation that controls the process of returning the capsule with the astronauts to Earth. In such a situation, the crew must be ready for emergency action.

During the exam, the astronauts were also tasked with “landing” as close as possible to the calculated landing point and at the same time experiencing minimal overloads. According to the examination committee, the cosmonauts demonstrated excellent professional skills in performing manual controlled descent.

On August 20, Russian members of the ISS-41 / 42 backup crew, Gennady Padalka and Mikhail Kornienko, coped with this test successfully, Roscosmos reports.
