👨🚀 Russian crew members have started printing mock-ups of the ISS modules on a 3D printer in order to conduct spacewalk training, our special correspondent, Roscosmos cosmonaut Dmitry Petelin reports.Before practice, pilots sometimes work out a flight mission on the ground "on foot in flight" when they walk along the runway, imitating the trajectory and relative position of their aircraft with their models or palms. In the future, the astronauts plan to assemble a model of the entire station.Photo: Dmitry Petelin/Roscosmos/TASS, ISS
