ESA astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti training on the International Space Station during her Futura mission in 2015.
Samantha commented: "Soyuz manual descent On-Board Training. To drive home the point that we’ll be heading home way too soon, recently Anton and I had an OBT (On-Board Training) on Soyuz manual descent. Just like in the simulator in Star City we got to fly manual reentry profiles: we just had to get used to pushing buttons on the laptop keyboard, instead of the big buttons of the real manual descent control device."
