There's no set requirement - it depends entirely on the mission requirements (EVA, satellite deployment or recovery, ISS docking, etc.) as to what they'll do an how many they'll perform. However, it's not unusual for them to train for hundreds or thousands of hours prior to their missions....

Russia was developing a space shuttle very similar to the United State's space shuttle called Buran (Russian for Snowstorm). The Buran program began in 1974 as a response to the United State's Space Shuttle program. The Russians believed that the US Space Shuttle could be a significant military...
That's where air pressure gets greater as you get lower in the atmosphere. That's why airplanes can't fly enough in the upper atmosphere because there is less air molecules.
They don't. NASA invents them for space. We do not fund spinoffs
The three main elements are:. FUEL, for solid or liquid engines. This is the part that actually burns.. OXIDIZER, for both, as there is not enough oxygen in the fuel cell to cause combustion. Combustion causes expanding gasses and controlled release from the combustion chamber causes thrust.....
