The backup crew of ISS-62/63 performed an “emergency training”, during which the Roscosmos cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner, together with the astronaut Stephen Bowen, worked out actions in the event of a fire in the Russian segment of the station.

Until the end of the month, this crew has a very busy training schedule – the Irkuts (call sign of the crew)are at the Cosmonaut Training Center for training.

During the training two main scenarios were provided.

Both begin the same way: instructors simulate a fire in one of the modules, the station rapidly fills with smoke, sensors are triggered, which leads to a shutdown of ventilation and air supply.

Special isolating gas masks and fire extinguishers, located at the station, helps the crew.

Having eliminated the fire, Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Wagner and Stephen Bowen, in accordance with the on-board documentation, performed operations to restore the atmosphere at the station, so that it was safe for the life and work of the crew, and returned to the flight program.

According to the second scenario, it was not possible to eliminate the fire at the station.

Here, the expedition commander, assessing the situation and guided by the recommendations of the Mission Control Center, decided to leave the station and evacuate the crew to Earth.

The “emergency training” of the ISS-63 backup crew continued in the simulators hall of the “Soyuz” manned spacecraft.

Here, without taking off their gas masks, Anatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Wagner and Stephen Bowen put on the “Sokol” spacesuits, took their places in the ship and started operations to return to Earth.

Trainings on the Russian Segment of the ISS and “Soyuz” this week were supplemented for the ISS-62/63 backup crew by exercises on the “Exit-2” simulator.

The Russian cosmonauts worked out actions in case of emergency situations, arising in “Orlan-ISS” spacesuits in the process of going out into open space.

The first joint training of Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Wagner was successful.

The astronauts showed a good level of work in eliminating emergency

Today, astronaut Stephen Bowen will join their Russian colleagues, with whom the crew will work out a cyclogram of forward and reverse locking during the spacewalk on the “Exit-2” simulator.
