Training video published by the Training Centerastronauts. Misurnik completed a moon landing on the Exit-2 simulator. This simulator is capable of generating gravity as on a natural satellite of the Earth. Also, the suspension system allows you to simulate the state of weightlessness.

On the moon, the weight of a 100-kg spacesuit will be feltsix times less, since gravity there is six times weaker. The astronaut simulated exiting the lander, jumping on the lunar surface, working with a hand instrument, and returning to the module.
