This annual exercise is done to familiarize all groups responsible for astronaut rescue during a launch abort at the pad in real world conditions. One of our training instructors was asked to participate as an astronaut and this is the video she made from it. She was able to suit up and be hauled around during the week long exercise. Real astronauts can be seen in some pics wearing their blue jumpsuits, but stand-ins are used for the training (we are expendable I guess). She said it was a blast even though it was a little strenuous being in that suit all week in the heat. Now we get to see more stuff that most people don’t!
