Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre
ESA astronaut Timothy Peake during winter survival training near Star City, Russia, on 22 January 2014.
Survival training is an important part of all Soyuz mission training. There is always the possibility that a Soyuz spacecraft could land in a remote, cold area. All astronauts have to learn to survive in harsh climates while waiting for rescue.
Timothy Peake is flight engineer for Expedition 46/47, which will be launched to the International Space Station at the end of November 2015 on a long-duration mission. He will be the first British ESA astronaut to visit the Space Station.
