Submarine space walking
The underwater simulator is used to train cosmonauts for space walks and ISS construction. The cosmonauts are trained to move around in bulky space-walking suits that are weighed down with lead in the pockets to make them neutrally buoyant which is as close as we can come on Earth to simulated weightlessness.
