Selorm and Branden learned all about the Rescue System. It's one of the main things astronauts have to know.

If they're separated from the crew, there's a manual controller that powers a jet backpack they have on, which allows them to safely return to the station.

Next the duo had to fly a T-38 Talon Two-Seat Jet Trainer in a simulator.

Astronauts use this jet to get familiar with the procedures of flying and things that are procedurally similar to when they fly in space.

Both Selorm and Branden did an AMAZING job and could totally have a second career in NASA.

They both have a totally newfound respect for astronauts and their dedication. Particularly all the intensive training they undergo to be able to go out into space.
