They are also subject to training in space laboratories to operate special equipment and devices necessary to conduct scientific and engineering experiments.
The astronauts also trained on the space shuttle with jet planes that throw them from behind to practice flying, away from the spaceship, without a safety line, and the astronauts spend their time training on simulators, which are devices that simulate exactly the conditions of space flight, and crew members spend about 8 hours a day.

Earth and the astronauts in orbit, after successfully completing the first year in exercises that included simulating spacewalks, using a suit, station maintenance and rescuing astronauts in critical situations, during 6 hours underwater in the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory (NBL), as well as flying T-38 jets, which It simulates working inside a spacecraft, especially as it requires familiarization with aircraft components, control and navigation systems, and standard and emergency procedures.
