The astronauts practiced moon walking on the surface of volcanoes

The Mission of "-11" in the course of which man took the first step on the moon, ended 50 years ago. At the moment the astronauts, it is important to prepare for the next missions and to learn to use a new geological instruments and other electronics, which are much more difficult than a half century ago. This is especially important for the European space Agency ESA, who previously never seriously thought about manned missions to the moon. What are time — tested are already on the volcanic terrain of Spain.

Especially for this ESA-founder of the Pangea-X, which aims to combine the exploration of space, high-tech equipment for research and Geology. As the European Agency does not own spacesuits, the astronauts use a NASA suits. They are very similar to those, which at the time was worn by Neil Armstrong and buzz Aldrin. They hinder movement, not allowing pilots to Crouch and bend, and thick gloves are not sealed give hold small items. To learn how to use equipment in awkward costumes — one of the main tasks of the researchers.

We Do not own lunar space suits for these tests, but after spending hours of training in spacesuits of NASA, we are accustomed to the restrictions of movement — shared hervé Stevenin, designer for space flight.

For efficiency, missions, costumes equipped with 360-degree cameras, taking pictures in real time. Also the astronauts have an electronic field book to record research results. The Agency wants to achieve that all study data instantly went to ground or a space station for a more detailed analysis.

Recall that suits the new generation are already in development. The big breakthroughs in this matter was made by the engineers at Boeing and SpaceX to read the opinion of astronaut Sunita Williams about the new features .
