Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and even the coroner's office in Dayton, Ohio.
 

Summary: Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and even
the coroner's office in Dayton, Ohio.
At the Kennedy Space Center, residents
learn about the aeromedical preparation
and staging for space shuttle flights--
including pre- and post-flight
management of astronauts. "It's a very
complex operation that takes place
there," Sahiar said. "You've got to prepare
for any type of contingency." The
residents learn from exercises covering
multiple emergency scenarios--from an
explosion aboard the space shuttle to an
aborted mission that results in an ocean
splashdown.
"They will see us go through all of our
planning for a mission where we stage
our resources, handling any issues that
may arise. We have a triage team to
support the launch and landing," said
