Caption: Spacewalk training for astronauts. European Space Agency (ESA) astronauts Christer Fuglesang (right) and Thomas Reiter (centre) training to prepare for Extravehicular Activity (spacewalks) prior to the Euromir 95 mission to the Mir Space Station in May 1995. They are wearing cooling suits, which are worn underneath the spacesuit (left) during training. Water pumped through the coils of the training suit keep the astronauts cool as they train underwater in the watertight spacesuits. Underwater training simulates the weightless conditions experienced in orbit.
