Training and Education is one of the most inportant parts in the space shuttle program. A successful mission is a result of teamwork of many different individuals. Many people think the flight crew is the most important part of the mission. Without mission control, the space shuttle mission cannot take place. Mission control and the flight crew need to work together as a team. Nasa used a simulator similar to the FDF to train astronauts in Gemini, Apollo sky lab programs. The simuator was used to train astronauts for working in the frictionless environment of space durning an EVA. The five D.F. is supported by three air bearing pads whitch float over a flat floor. It is much more difficult to work in space than here on Earth. For every action there is one equal and opposite reaction, so it is much more difficult to work in space. Today astronauts train for EVA's in the nuetral buoyancy simulation tanks. The simulation tanks provide weight to the astronauts, so they neither sink or float in the water. Throuh this training, the astronaut learns what it's like to work in space. The astronauts train for three types of moonwalkes, the Bunny/Kangaroo Hop, the Side to Side, and the Slow motion Jog. Mission Specialist Astronauts have overall responsibility for the coordination of Space Shuttle operations. Operations include crew activity planning, consumable usage, and experiment operations. Mission specialists are required to have detailed knowledge of Space Shuttle systems. Mission specialists perform spacewalks and payload handling. The Multi-Axis was built for the U.S. Space and Rocket Center to demonstrate the feeling of a spacecraft tumbling in space. The MASTIF is a training simulator that simulates the tumbling motion of a spaceship out of control. To become an astronaut you must be able to do every level of training without demostrating fear.
