Gaganyaan: Indian astronauts complete training on crew actions in Russia

Four Indian Air Force officers selected to be part of the Gaganyaan mission have completed training in Russia on crew actions in the event of an abnormal descent module landing. In a statement, Glavkosmos, a subsidiary of Russian space organisation Roscosmos, said that the officers were in good health and determined to continue with the rest of the module.

“The Indian cosmonauts are undergoing training at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center (GCTC) following the courses of the general space training program and of the systems of the Soyuz MS crewed spacecraft,” Roscosmos said in a statement.

The regular courses include medical and physical training, learning Russian (as one of the main international languages of communication in space), and studying the configuration, structure, and systems of the Soyuz crewed spacecraft.
