An Overview of the Orbital Qualification Process, Page 1

There are four training steps that all aspiring cosmonauts must
complete prior to embarking on a mission into space.

Step One: Medical Qualification Examination
Step Two: Theoretical Lessons, Lectures and Active Hands-On Simulator Training
Step Three: Learning how to work as valuable member of a cosmonaut team.
Step Four: Actual training with other members of your assigned mission team.

STEP ONE: The Medical - What to Expect

Any individual seeking a thorough analysis of their health condition may apply for testing. No interest in space travel is required. The total cost of tests is a fraction of what it would cost to have testing completed in a US hospital.

Applications for testing and full payment is requested no less than thirty days in advance so the IMBP can prepare for your arrival. A patient/applicant must have the following documents:

  • Complete medical history
  • Data on the psychiatric illnesses, alcohol and drug history
  • Recent urine and blood analyses
  • Analysis for AIDS, RW, HbS-antigen, antigen to C hepatitis
  • Ultrasonic examination, ECG

The following examinations are performed in the IMBP:

  • Clinical blood analysis
  • Urine analysis
  • Feces analysis
  • Biochemical blood analysis
  • ECG
  • Echo-ECG
  • Ultrasonic examination of internal organs, small pelvis, parathyroid gland
  • Bycicle-ergometry
  • Ortho-test
  • EEG
  • Gastroscopy
  • Audiometry
  • Vestibular tests
  • Tests in pressurized chamber
  • Testing in centrifuge
  • X-ray
  • Ultrasonic doplerography of vessels
  • Additional testing, as required
  • Specialists' examination (general practitioner, ear, nose and throat specialist; neurologist; surgery; ophthalmologist, psychologist, gynecologist for women; urologist for men, and others)
