The IL-76 MDK is a unique simulator for creating short-term weightlessness.

During these time intervals, it is possible to test people and equipment that will be used in orbit.

After the mandatory pre-flight briefing, testing of parachute systems and special cargo placement, tests in zero gravity and double overload modes begin.

No cosmonaut will go into orbit without these parabolic flights, and as the astronauts themselves note, such training is much more difficult than a real space flight.

The plot of Natalia Burtseva starred Viktor Ren, Anatoly Zabruskov, Sergey Prokopyev and other testers of the cosmonaut squad of the Gagarin Space Center.


V.A. Ren is a test instructor of aerospace technology, a test parachutist, a Hero of the Russian Federation. Zabruskov A.V. -- test cosmonaut, Deputy Head of the Department of Extreme Types of Cosmonaut Training at the Gagarin Space Center. Prokopyev S.V. -- test cosmonaut, Hero of the Russian Federation.
