Astronomy Science ~ Anything can happen when launching or landing of manned spacecraft and possibly in some, cases crew will end up stranded in remote areas of the world, astronauts and cosmonauts undergo survival training and carry a survival kit. This kit contains items such as food rations, water, extra clothing, items to make shelter and other survival equipment.
Cosmonauts also regularly carry a gun in their Soyuz spacecraft. It has long been known and discussed, but the author James Simpson recently wrote an article about the history and justification why the gun in space seems a good idea.

TP-82 pistol (Russian: ТП-82) was a Soviet handgun triple cannon that was used by astronauts in space missions.

It was designed as an aid to survival to use after landing and before recovery in the wilderness of Siberia. The top two smoothbore barrels used 12.5 × 70 mm ammunition (size 32) and lowest rifled use 5.45 × 39mm ammunition. The weapon can be used for hunting, for defense against predators and visible and audible distress signals. Removable action was also a machete which came with a cloth cover.

TP-82 were held regularly in the Soviet and Russian space missions between 1986 and 2006. They were part of emergency equipment portable survival Soyuz (Носимый аварийный запас, Nosimyi Avariynyi Zapas, ZAN). In 2007, the media reported that the remaining ammunition for the TP-82 had become useless and a regular semi-automatic pistol used in future missions.

"Having a weapon in the spacecraft thin-walled and filled with oxygen sounds crazy," Simpson wrote, "but the Soviets have their reasons. Most of Russia is a remote wilderness area. A single accident during landing could carry astronauts to the territory of the middle of nowhere."

Weapons under the cosmonauts during the Soviet era was not just any weapons. Journalist Jim Oberg called it "a versatile weapon with three barrels and a folding stock that serves as shovels and machetes which contains Swing-out."

The murder weapon bears TP-82 used until 2007, after the ammunition is no longer manufactured, but Russia still have the survival kit that may be high-powered gun as MP-443 or Makarov PM, "Simpson wrote." Russian Space Agency did not discuss the TP-82 or his successor. "
And NASA does not like to discuss the problem of weapons, but should all passengers who will use Soyuz spacecraft - including US astronaut and citizens who pay to be space tourists - were trained to use a gun. Because when using a Soyuz landing, they will land in the territory of Russia and could have been stranded in the area inhabited by wild animals Yag.

Oberg According to another article written in 2014, Russia now usually do not have a weapon as part of a survival kit. Oberg said that the Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti quoting a Russian official said, "the gun is still in the official list of the contents of the kit, but before the mission we met to review the list and choose to remove certain cost."

Good Or Bad Idea?

Outer Space Treaty prohibits each country puts weapons of mass destruction in orbit of Earth, on the Moon or other celestial objects, or "station them in outer space." However, the Treaty does not prohibit the placement of conventional weapons in orbit
