ISS-47/48 mission main (Alexei Ovchinin, Roscosmos, Oleg Skripochka, Roscosmos, Jeoffrey Williams, NASA) and back-up (Sergey Ryzhikov, Roscosmos, Andrei Borisenko, Roscosmos, Robert Kimbrough, NASA)  crews go on passing preflight exams in GCTC.

Last week Russian cosmonauts successfully passed exam on Soyuz TMA-M approaching and redocking with the station on Don-Soyuz specialized simulator. A. Ovchinin. O. Skripochka and J. Williams practiced “standard flight day onboard the ISS”. This training is a kind of rehearsal of complex examinational training.

S. Ryzhikov, A. Borisenko and R. Kimbrough passed same training either.

Oleg Skripochka: We’ve been practicing standard flight day onboard the station, accomplished onboard system maintenance, conducted experiments, etc. Naturally there were off-nominal situations simulated during the training that we had to cope with and we did.

Alexei Ovchinin: We all worked in team trying to help each other when possible.

Exams in GCTC will sum up the results of cosmonauts and astronauts preflight training. On February 24 and 25 the cosmonauts will pass complex examination trainings during which they will spend standard flight day onboard the ISS and  practice flight program.
