    replicate/simulate conditions of outer space

    Astronauts have to undergo intensive training in conditions that replicate those of outer space.

    The answer is replicate, I think the word should be simulate. Am I correct?

    Thanks.

    Re: replicate/simulate conditions of outer space

    I suppose it depends on how they do it.

    Replicate means to copy, whereas simulate means to give the appearance of.

    Is there any information regarding the techniques used?

    I would agree that "simulate" would be a more accurate term especially when it refers to "conditions".
