Winter Survival Training

The Winter Survival Training, meanwhile, trains astronauts how to survive the brutal Russian winter in a forest on their own in case they are forced to make emergency landings anywhere, including in unpopulated, hard-to-reach terrain in various climatic and geographical areas. They are taught how to get out of a damaged capsule, build two types of shelters, utilise available resources, and communicate with research teams through visual signals by using flares or wireless communication.
