The crews of the ISS began to "Water Survival"

 June 27, 2016

 Staff and contingent on the ISS expedition crews and instructors Cosmonaut Training Center started training for action after a spaceship landing on the water surface - the so-called "water survival."  Trainings are held on the basis of the 179th Emergency Center (Noginsk, Moscow region).  Preparation for the training and conduct of test and provide training team, which was composed of trainers, doctors, psychologists, divers, interpreters and other specialists Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center, as well as representatives of NASA, ESA and JAXA.  Before passing the stage of practical training crews attended theoretical disciplines of the course.

 Monday training on "Water Survival" held two full-time crew: ISS-53/54 ( Alexander Skvortsov and Ivan Wagner , Roscosmos, Scott Tingle , NASA) and the ISS-54/55 ( Sergey Ryazan , Roscosmos, Randolph Breznik , NASA; Norishige Kanai , JAXA).

 The crew of the ISS-53/54 now fulfilled the task of so-called "dry" training.  In her script, cosmonauts and astronauts carried out on land "dress rehearsal" evacuation of the lander.  The aim of the "dry" training is the psychological training of the crew to act in emergency situations after landing on water surface and development of skills of operator activity in the descent module.  In addition, the "survival" of the participants gain experience of interaction with the search and rescue services (MSS).  According to the sequence diagram, cosmonauts and astronauts work out the steps to remove the suit "Sokol KV-2", dressing inside lander in Flight Suits (PP-14), thermal protection suits (TCC-14) and the diving suit "Forel".

 During the "long" training, which will Skvortsov A., J. Wagner and C. Tingley tomorrow, the lander will be in the water.

 Evacuation during the "long" and "short" training

 Sergey Ryazan, Randolph Breznik and Norishige Kanai went "dry" training session on Friday, the first day of "survival", and today the ISS-54/55 has successfully coped with the "long" training.  Tomorrow they will have to work out the "short" training.  In her condition, after ditching the crew discovers a leak in the descent module, through which the water flows fast.  With little time to reserve CA flooding, cosmonauts and astronauts must:

 - Take the blocks portable emergency (NAE) and leave the SA;

 - To collect water in a group;

 - To work out actions for evacuation and interaction with the search and rescue service.

 The purpose of the "short" training - urgently, within 8 - 9 minutes in spacesuits "Sokol KV-2" to leave the lander.

On the new patch the name of Anton Shkaplerov instead of Aleksandr Skvortzov is written.
This suggest that the crew of Soyuz MS-07 was changed.
Is there any conformation of the change?

Good luck to Randolph native and BHR Class of 1983 alum Scott Tingle. I've enjoyed following his career...

Space Flight Update:

Our launch is now scheduled for December 17th at 03:20 AM east coast time.

For my friends in family in Boston, the locations that I was hoping to use for a launch viewing party will not be open during this early time. Darn the luck :-). If you are inclined to stay up, or decide to get up to watch the launch, you will be able to view the events on NASA TV (www.nasa.gov) real-time.

The launch of Soyuz MS-07 will carry Anton Shkaplerov, myself, and Norishige Kanai to the international space station. The rendezvous with the space station will be a 2-day rendezvous, and we expect to open the hatch on the 19th of December. This event will also be televised on NASA TV. We will spend approximately 4 months on the International Space Station conducting maintenance, science and outreach events. Our return to earth is currently planned for April 17th, although it is likely to change. I'll try and keep you updated as we get closer.

I hope you are all doing well!!

NASA astronaut Scott Tingle and crewmates Anton Shkaplerov of the Russian space agency Roscosmos and Norishege Kanai of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) will discuss their upcoming mission to the International Space Station in a news conference at 2 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, Oct. 11 at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.

The news conference will be broadcast live on NASA Television and streamed on the agency’s website, and the crew will be available for in-person or remote media interviews afterward.

Tingle, Shkaplerov and Kanai will launch to the space station aboard the Soyuz MS-07 spacecraft on Dec. 17 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. They will join the station’s Expedition 54 crew, and return to Earth in April 2018 as members of Expedition 55. This will be the first spaceflight for Tingle and Kanai, and the third for Shkaplerov.

Reporters who wish to participate by telephone must call Johnson's newsroom at 281-483-5111 no later than 1:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 11. To request credentials to participate in person or to schedule an interview, U.S. reporters must contact Johnson's newsroom by 5 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 10. Those following the briefing on social media may ask questions using the hashtag #askNASA.

During a planned four-month mission, the station crew members will take part in about 250 research investigations and technology demonstrations not possible on Earth in order to advance scientific knowledge of Earth, space, physical and biological sciences. Science conducted on the space station continues to yield benefits for humanity and will enable future long-duration human and robotic exploration into deep space, including missions past the Moon and Mars.

A U.S. Navy captain, Tingle grew up in Randolph, Massachusetts, and earned a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering from Southeastern Massachusetts University in Dartmouth, now the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, and a Master of Science in mechanical engineering from Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. Following graduate school, Tingle spent three years with the Aerospace Corp., in El Segundo, California, as a technical staff member in its Propulsion Department. He was commissioned as a U.S. Navy officer in 1991, and accumulated more than 4,500 flight hours in 51 types of aircraft, 750 carrier arrestments and 54 combat missions. Tingle was selected in July 2009 as one of 14 members of the 20th NASA astronaut class. His training included scientific and technical briefings; intensive instruction in space station systems; spacewalks; robotics; physiological training; T-38 flight training; and water and wilderness survival training.
