“First of all, we will focus on scientific specialties – said the famous cosmonaut. – However, don’t have a clear idea of whether to upgrade the education of biologists and chemists specialties or space to teach experimentation professional astronauts. While we live in the days of station wagons. However, in the future this question will be addressed in connection with necessity of expansion of human activities in space”. For example, during the development of the lunar surface and the construction of the research station, Russia will begin special training of builders, engineers with space specialization. As for the physical training of future explorers of the moon, she most likely does not differ from the degree of cosmonaut training at the present time. “And now they have a fairly rigorous selection process,” said Sergei Krikalev. The creation of the first Russian lunar station, he said, will be possible after 2035.

Krikalev also said that “cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin, and did not get your flight state awards, be sure to get a Star of the Hero”. The problem, according to Krikalev, no no. There was always a certain time required to provide documents to the award ceremony. “I had a sixth flight is also not yet received any awards”, — said the head of manned programs.

However, he observed that the period during which the astronaut will be awarded usually does not exceed one year. Alexander Misurkin waiting for the Star for the third year.
