Principia Survival Training

This video shows astronaut Tim Peake and the Principia crew undertaking winter survival training pre- mission.

This is one example of how extreme conditions which can be encountered on Earth can be used to replicate possible scenarios in space and around the various missions undertaken. This further demonstrates the interconnected relationship of the science which happens on Earth and that which occurs on the International Space Station in beginning to answer the question of how life could be supported in space and on other planets on a long term basis in the future.
