How does an astronaut return to Earth from the International Space Station? What does it feel like to re-enter the atmosphere? How does the Soyuz capsule function? Watch and find out. This video is based on an actual lesson delivered to the ESA astronaut class of 2009 (also known as the #Shenanigans09) during their ESA Basic Training. It features interviews with astronauts who have flown on the Soyuz and dramatic footage of actual landings.

Produced by the ESA Human Spaceflight and Operations (HSO) Astronaut Training Division, Cologne, Germany, in collaboration with the HSO Strategic Planning and Outreach Office, Noordwijk, The Netherlands, with special support from Roskosmos.

Hele şu gavura bak nelerde biliy.

Shameful that after the beautiful operation of The Shuttle, mankind is still building disposable rockets that just fall back to earth.

After living in and going from 0 G to 4 G is probably not fun, but these are well trained tough ppl.

Hats up to u ❤️🙏

This video is so beautiful

I think that astronaut Naspoli was not entirely correct describing gravity as a very strong force,it is actually weak , the 4 G maximum load in a normal decent are generated not by gravity but by the very fast capsule slowed down violently by earths atmosphere ! Without air the capsule would only fall with one G towards earth not stronger than what a diver feels jumping down into a swimming pool!

Amazing masterpiece of math, engineering, tech, and science done by Russian

Oh my God.. How beautiful science is. I am really amazed to see the actual implications of science. Anyone watching in May 2019.?

Any watching it in July 2019?? While drafting summons lol

If they want to go for toilet how it is possible?

So does the rockets or space crafts that we have work better in an empty vacuum of space or in our oxygen fulfilled atmosphere? Because it either sounds to me like it wouldn't work at all or that it would work better as our dusty atmosphere has really thick air
So you would go faster ounce out of our atmosphere.
stevie ray genoch
Wait so does that mean heavier objects orbit faster? But there's no gravity in space so how is there wait difference or wait at all? And what makes you go under orbit or even change speed? Rocket power? How does that work like firing a bullet from a gun? I guess I can understand that technology in that way.... but tell me more...

That was really amazing documentary movie , thanks!

Biggest Black hole in the Universe Soyuz undocking, reentry and landing 2 days ago   00:00

A supermassive black hole (SMBH or sometimes SBH) is the largest type of black hole, containing a mass of the order of hundreds of thousands to billions of times the mass of the Sun (M☉). Black holes are a class of astronomical object that have undergone gravitational collapse, leaving behind spheroidal regions of space from which nothing can escape, not even light. Observational evidence indicates that nearly all large galaxies contain a supermassive black hole, located at the galaxy's center.[4][5] In the case of the Milky Way, the supermassive black hole corresponds to the location of Sagittarius A* at the Galactic Core.[6][7] Accretion of interstellar gas onto supermassive black holes is the process responsible for powering quasars and other types of active galactic nuclei.
