What happens if there is a loss of pressure in your cabin while you are travelling in space?
Prepare for this emergency under the supervision of our experts.
Experience a cabin decompression
WHAT ARE YOU SIMULATING?
In a spacecraft, you can breathe normally because the cabin pressure is kept under control. In case of a malfunction, this pressure can drop, lowering the quantity of available oxygen.
During this training, we expose you to oxygen deprivation under the supervision of our experts.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT:
You will learn all about the conditions and symptoms associated with hypoxia (oxygen deprivation).
You will experience early symptoms so that you can detect and address them on time.
You will get an answer to all your questions about cabin decompression.
Afterwards, you receive a certificate of completion.
WHOM THE TRAINING IS FOR:
Aspiring private astronauts wanting to prepare for space travel. (This is a perfect addition to the existing Astronaut for a Day programme).
Companies looking for a high-end team-building exercise.
Space enthusiasts looking for an unforgettable experience.
Anyone who would like to know what oxygen deprivation feels like.
WHAT THE DAY WILL LOOK LIKE:
We welcome you to the Centre for Man in Aviation in Soesterberg, The Netherlands.
You will get a short medical check-up to make sure that it is safe for you to perform this exercise.
Our experts will explain the concept of hypoxia and guide you through the experience.
You will participate in a small group of ten people at the most.
You enter our hypobaric chamber, wearing an oxygen mask. We then reduce the atmospheric pressure inside the room to simulate high altitudes.
You remove your oxygen mask to experience the symptoms of hypoxia under the supervision of our experts.
We will ask you to perform simple tasks, such as writing your name. Afterwards, you will be surprised to see how poorly you performed. Just like a drunk driver, you will think that you are doing fine, while your ability to function gets increasingly compromised.
You will learn what the symptoms of hypoxia symptoms are so that you can avoid oxygen emergencies during space travel.
This is a standard exercise at an intermediate price level.
