Astronomer talks about Belarus’ space exploration prospects

MINSK, 3 April (BelTA) – The Russian astronomer, assistant professor of the Physics Department of Moscow State University (Russia) Vladimir Surdin shared his opinion of Belarus’ prospects in the area of space exploration after the launch of Belarus’ first cosmonaut to the International Space Station (ISS) in the latest episode of BelTA’s YouTube project V Teme [On Point].
Vladimir Surdin said: “The human space flight is only the first step. In actual fact it will require and has already required new technologies and personnel training programs. And the healthcare system will have to handle some extreme matters as well.”

The astronomer remarked that the cosmonaut is an extremely dangerous profession. “It is extremely intensive and requires absolutely non-trivial capabilities. Including on the part of those who train cosmonauts,” he stressed.

Vladimir Surdin drew attention to space medicine. “It takes care not only of cosmonauts. I am also talking about submarine personnel, representatives of other dangerous and stressful professions that turn to space medics all the time. I hope that a community of medics for extreme work will be concentrated in Belarus now. And not only cosmonautics will need them,” he added.
