Russian, US Scientists to Prepare Astronauts for Extreme Situations in Space

RIA Novosti said:

TOMSK, September 2 (RIA Novosti) Russian and American scientists are starting a large-scale study into the cognitive psychology of astronauts to develop new technologies to adjust them for operations in extreme conditions, Tomsk State University (TSU) head Edward Galazhinsky told reporters Tuesday.

"This is a search for patterns and the development of new mechanisms to adjust the actions of the astronauts, which would allow them to make correct decisions in extreme situations, when there is a huge number of unforeseen situations. The human factor is not excluded. Together we are working on technologies that would allow the astronauts to accomplish safe spacecraft docking," Galazhinsky said.
