There are two ways to experience zero gravity without leaving the earth's atmosphere: underwater with the so-called "zero buoyancy" and on a special plane diving down and soaring up along a parabolic trajectory.

The training of cosmonaut candidates for the 2018 set has been completed at the Gagarin Central Research Center.

Inside the Il-76 MDK flying laboratory, future conquerors of orbits get acquainted with the feeling of weightlessness and acquire skills that will be useful in the future in real weightlessness during the unloading of ships, when moving equipment and other cargo, and just in ordinary everyday life at the station.
