Soon, several experienced Russian cosmonauts will leave the squad training cosmonauts at his own request and for health reasons, according to the Agency TASS citing a source in the rocket and space industry.

A few days ago Gennady Ivanovich Padalka, the answers to the questions which users of the social network , has already written a letter of resignation. His decision, he explained the lack of prospects for him in next space flight to establish a record 1000-day stay in space. At the moment, on account of Padalka 878 days spent in space.

"in Addition to Gennady Padalka group of astronauts recently left another experienced cosmonaut, Sergei Volkov. He also has written the application at own will" — a source told the Agency.

"There is information according to which in a short time the condition can leave the other two astronaut, and one removed for the same reason." — adds the source.

UPDATED: it Became known that the interdepartmental Commission of the state Corporation "Roscosmos" cosmonauts expelled Sergey Volkov, Alexander Samokutyaev and Sergei Revin.

It Should be noted that the ranks of astronauts in 2016, also declined. Mikhail Tyurin (flight three) left the squad in January, Oleg Kotov (flight three), who now holds the position of head of the Center for manned space programs TsNIIMash, left in may; in September, the detachment left Yuri Malenchenko (six flights); also in September, went Maxim Suraev (two flights) and Elena Serova (flight). Both now work in the state Duma.

The head of the TSPK (cosmonauts training Center) Yuri Lonchakov compares the squad training with any living organism and says that in changes of its composition is not unusual. As they occurred and always will occur.

"someday, astronauts do have to leave the squad. Some do it because of the change of priorities in life, someone dictates health. And that, no matter how sad, it is a common process," — comments Lonchakov.

According to him, some retired from the cosmonaut corps are working in CTC and share their experience with the younger generation. Among them, for example, Yuri Onufrienko and Valery Korzun, the heads of departments of the Center, Salizhan Sharipov, head of the youth education center, counselors, head of the Center Sergey Zaletin and Basil Tsibliev, Yuri Malenchenko, the first Deputy head of the Center, and Mikhail Tyurin, working on the post of Deputy commander of the cosmonaut corps.

"Care for each astronaut from the squad — it's a difficult decision, not only for the astronaut, but for the CPC, for manned space flight. There was a time when the squad was fully stocked, there was a period when the squad for a long time «updated». CTC now reached the stage when many astronauts go from the flight posts, the bulk being forced to do it for health reasons", — said Lonchakov.

Lonchakov reminded that Roscosmos and cosmonaut training center this year announced a new selection of astronauts. At the end of this selection by the end of the year, the office is going to pick 6-8 people. He also said that the new generation of astronauts in the near future will be assigned to crews.

"the time has Come when you should give way to the younger generation of astronauts, and the leadership of the state Corporation "Roscosmos" us full support in this. We are preparing to accept new candidates and hope that they will be able to learn from the experience of those astronauts who work in the middle" — said the head of the TSPK.

The Stage of General space training of the new cosmonaut candidates will end this year. After that, they are still a couple of years will be prepared in the composition of their crews for future space missions.
