Space Engineering and Spacecraft – Instructor Led Training
The purpose of this training is to provide general knowledge necessary for Japanese astronauts. Basic engineering knowledge needed in spacecraft system training or in actual operation, and summaries of the Space Shuttle, Soyuz, and H-II rocket will be included. Most of the courses will be taught by JAXA personnel, including Japanese astronauts. Personnel from universities or research institutes will teach specific courses.
Training on Russian spacecraft such as Soyuz will be conducted at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center (GCTC) in Russia. In order to acquire information for setting up this training plan, astronaut Noguchi investigated GCTC in the summer of 1998 and experienced Russian astronaut training.
Basic Science – Instructor Led Training
In this area, the astronaut candidates will learn the general principles of Life Sciences, Microgravity Science, Earth Observation, and Space Science for experiments and observations aboard ISS and for the related training. This includes not only receiving lectures, but also actually performing experiments and conducting observations. Lecturers will be those from various JAXA and university research centers.
On-Orbit Operation and Systems – Instructor Led Training
Astronaut candidates will learn outlines of on-orbit ISS system operations and utilization. After completing basic training, astronauts will enter the advanced training and increment-specific training phases (see the April article) where they will receive actual ISS system operation and utilization training using training facilities. They will also conduct training to master operating equipment and performing experiments on orbit. The training will also provide Japanese astronaut candidates as much knowledge of Japanese Experiment Module (Kibo) systems as possible.
Basic Ability – Instructor Led Training
Basic Ability Training means training other than described above and includes maintaining and improving techniques and abilities necessary for astronauts and includes a variety of fields. For example, it includes training in English, the official language used during their stays at ISS. They also receive instruction in the Russian language for the training which will be conducted in Russia. These two languages training represents one-fourth of the total Basic Training (400 hours in total).
Model Rocket Design and Construction
Getting Started – Instructor Led Training
Designing and building successful model rockets is a step-by-step process with several different phases. This book will discuss each part in sufficient depth to help you develop successful rockets, but first it is important to know what makes a successful rocket flight— the goal of every rocketeer.
Construction Tools – Instructor Led Training
Construction will go much faster and the parts will fit together more closely if you have the proper tools for the job. The following list describes the basic tools you’ll need to build your rocket design and tells why each tool is necessary. You probably already have most of these tools, although if you are missing any, you can find them easily at hobby shops, hardware or craft stores.
