First of anything and everything is always remembered; First ship, First astronaut, First spacecraft, First movie, etc. Similarly, first in space will be remembered.
It’s been a while for the news of Tom Cruise to shoot a movie in space, but Russian Actress Yulia Pereslid and director Klim Shipenko beat him to shoot a movie in space.
Last year it was announced that a Hollywood project by “Mission Impossible” star Tom Cruise in partnership with NASA and Elon Musk’s SpaceX would shoot a movie in space. However, Russians are all set to beat them.
The team of Russian film was docked at The International space station for a 12-day mission in a Soyuz MS-19 intended to shoot a film called ” The challenge” in orbit.
The Rocket was launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome, placed leased by Russia.
The film director joined the 37-year-old Actress after they both and the team went through months of training at the space center.
Russia’s Space agency dropped images of the crew entering the space station for the mission with the caption ” Welcome to ISS.”
A farmer who was part of space’s previous missions, “Anton Shkaplerov,” will travel along with other Russian Cosmonauts and reportedly play a cameo in the film.
Although the plot of the film was strictly kept under wraps, said by Roscosmos to center around female surgeons who will save a cosmonaut.
The team will be back on October 17, 2021to earth. Well! The sky is not the limit for some fits well here, as Klim Shipenko said he is looking forward to Making a Mars-Based Sequel.
Russians are excitedly celebrating the achievement. Their media reportedly provided Blanket and patriotic coverage with a countdown clock and various anchors framing the breakthrough while the world was watching closely.
The competition between the Russian space agency and US space agency is the hallmark of the cold war. Where Russians launched the first satellite and sent the first men and women to space, on the other hand, NASA was the first one to land on the Moon. There’s always a silent war between the two countries to dominate space, but I guess this time Russia managed to Beat the US by sending a film crew to shoot the first film in orbit as the Tom Cruise Starring Space film has been pushed to 2022.
