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.
