ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen takes us inside the Soyuz simulator at Star City as he participates in a suited simulation together with Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka.

Andreas Mogensen is currently training for his 10-day Iriss mission to the International Space Station, set for launch on 1 September 2015.

At the end of his mission, Andreas will return to Earth in a Soyuz spacecraft together with Gennady Padalka and spaceflight participant Sarah Brightman.

  1. Thank you for sharing this training, it is a really interesting insight! 
    More subtitles during the capsule depressurization would be appreciated as it would help a bit to understand what is going on.
    Otherwise, good luck for your training and do your best 😀

    Awesome videos, and a greeting from home! I don't know if this question has been asked but does the program require you to learn Russian? You seem to have a good command of English, so I imagine you might have a knack for languages.
