First-Ever Large Space Simulator Presented by Russian Scientists

Scientists of the Don branch of the Novocherkassk Simulation Center have presented the world’s first-ever space simulator that astronauts can train in prior to a space flight.

      The device effectively imitates the zero-gravity state and environments of planets and satellites of the Solar system.

      It took several years to create the aerospace simulator, which is as large as the hangar that is housing it. Programmers have developed the construction management system through a computer, which sets parameters of a planet selected. According to the scientists, the most difficult thing was to create the zero gravity state, since the space suits weigh 200 kilograms each and they had to be suspended on special setups.

      However, the experts have solved this challenge and now, when in the space flight simulator, a person feels zero body weight and moves as if in the outer space. First of all the scientists developed the program settings for environment of the Moon and Mars, so that the spacemen had an opportunity to test themselves not only in the outer space.
