Rare glimpse inside Russia's Star City cosmonaut training centre

Camera crews have been given a rare glimpse inside Russia's Star City cosmonaut training centre near Moscow.

Training includes rehearsing certain procedures in and around a replica of the International Space Station (ISS) submerged in a specially built pool.

The conditions enable cosmonauts to train in a state similar to the weightlessness experienced in real space flight.
