Russia to Shoot Movie in Space: For the first time in human history, Russia will achieve a position that hardly anyone has imagined. Russia is making a film here as part of an attempt to overtake a country like America in the space sector. The film will be shot on the International Space Station (ISS), for which the entire crew, including the actress, will be dispatched on Tuesday (Shootin on Space). If the mission is successful, the Russian team will surpass the Hollywood project announced earlier this year.
Russia Will Shoot Film in Space
The US space agency NASA and Elon Musk’s company SpaceX had announced to work on a project with actor Tom Cruise. Which was to be shot in space. But then, later, no information was revealed on this. At the same time, Russia can send 37-year-old actress Yulia Peresild and 38-year-old director Klim Shipenko from Baikonur Cosmodrome in former Soviet Kazakhstan. These people will travel to space under the leadership of veteran cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov.
What is the name and story of the movie?
The crew will depart the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft for a 12-day mission to the International Space Station. The name of the film that will be shot is ‘The Challenge’. Different scenes of the film will be shot here. The film will show the story of a female doctor who goes to the ISS to save an astronaut. Russia’s space agency Roscosmos gave information about this story. Director Shipenko called the film “an experiment” in an online press conference on Monday.
What day will the crew return?
Shipenko and Peresild are expected to return to Earth on October 17 in a capsule with astronaut Oleg Novitsky, who has been on the ISS for six months. This launch is taking place at a time when Russia’s space industry is facing challenging times. The government is giving the highest priority to military spending in the country. Compared to the Soviet era, now Russia has lagged far behind in terms of innovation.
