> >How is the training of astronaut Timothy Peak to the ISS
In December of this year, the astronaut of the European Space Agency Timothy Peak will travel to the International Space Station. We bring to your attention a photo report telling how the astronauts are preparing for space flights.

Tim Peak is undergoing training to obtain a PADI Rescue Diver rescue diver certificate at the European Space Agency's astronaut training center in Cologne, Germany. The better an astronaut's diving skills, the easier it is for him to venture into space.

Survival lessons are an important part of the training of astronauts who are to return to Earth in the descent capsule of the Soyuz spacecraft. There is always a chance that the capsule will land in a remote, cold region. All astronauts must be able to survive in a harsh climate in anticipation of rescuers.
