CSA astronaut David Saint-Jacques trains in the centrifuge in Star City

2018-01-30 – As part of their training, astronauts who fly aboard the Soyuz must perform simulation exercises in Star City’s centrifuge. 

During take-off and other phases of flight, astronauts experience strong acceleration. The centrifuge replicates that acceleration to prepare astronauts for what they will experience aboard the Soyuz. (Credit: Canadian Space Agency)
