RSC Energia after S.P. Korolev hosted training sessions for Russian cosmonauts on Node module being built for the International Space Station

 

From March 28 through April 4, S.P. Korolev Rocket-Space Corporation Energia held training sessions for Russian cosmonauts Yu.I. Malenchenko, N.V. Tikhonov, O.I. Skripochka, A.N. Ovchinin, O.D. Kononenko, S.V. Zaletin on flight article on Node module (NM) being built for the International Space Station (ISS) Russian Segment (RS).

The specialists from RSC Energia after S.P. Korolev and Y.A. Gagarin CTC Research Institute familiarized the cosmonauts with the main assemblies and systems placed inside and outside NM, as well as paths of crew transfer by handrails during extravehicular (EVA) operations. During their training sessions cosmonauts assessed convenience of the assemblies and equipment accommodation inside the module, as well as gave a close inspection of antenna, target, TV camera, cable mounting elements on its external surface.

 

For reference:

  1. RSC Energia after S.P. Korolev is the leading enterprise of Russian rocket and space industry in the field of manned space flights programs, responsible for building the ISS Russian Segment, its integration into the station and operational use, including manufacture and utilization of the key modules of the RS (Zvezda, Pirs, Poisk, Rassvet, etc.); production, launch and use of Soyuz TMA, Progress M space vehicles.
  2. Node module is equipped with six docking assemblies. One of them will be docked to multipurpose laboratory module Nauka and provide a capability to receive up to four new modules, as well as docking of the existing and advanced transport vehicles.
  3. Currently, electrical checks of NM flight article equipment and systems are nearing completion. As part of NM building project, its test articles are manufactured: dynamic mockup, brassboard, as well as the mockup for EVA operations development testing under conditions of simulating z-gravity at neutral buoyancy laboratory of Yu.A. Gagarin CTC Research Institute.
