Space Astronaut Coloring Page for Kids
Astronauts (called cosmonauts in Russia and taikonauts in China) go through a thorough training program. They study math and science in classrooms. They learn to operate their spacecraft by using computer-controlled simulators. These devices present astronauts with conditions that they will later experience during actual flight. Astronauts also must improve their physical fitness. They make special trips in airplanes to get used to the feeling of weightlessness.
