Abstract:

A study was made of training pilot-cosmonauts for cosmic flight problems, which consist of extremely low barometric pressure, the absence of molecular oxygen, cosmic radiation, severe temperature conditions, the danger of meteors noise, vibration, and accelerations experienced over the powered portions of the ascent and descent of the craft, and also the weightlessness during the time of orbital flight and the effect of the artificial atmosphere of the cabin, the work and rest schedule without the 24-hour time periods to which man is accustomed, the perculiarities in eating, restriction of movement, and psychological strain.
