Soyuz Cockpit Training
Mark and intructor Vladimir training in the Soyuz simulator. The commander is in the center seat and is seated slightly lower than the flight engineers, so he uses a pointing device to reach the buttons at the top of his part of the control panel. It can be pretty difficult work when your suit is pressurized and you are operating under g-loads.
