Space Training
Astronauts participate in various training activities in preparation for their assigned missions. 
There are numerous facilities astronauts use in preparation for a space mission. Critical tasks are planned and rehearsed ahead of time using both mock-ups and simulators. For example, all phases of a mission including launch, docking to the space station, releasing satellites, space walks, landing and even emergency bailout procedures are thoroughly practiced. This ensures each astronaut is prepared for every event that occurs during a mission.
