Russia is now going to achieve for the first time in human history, which hardly anyone could have imagined before. Yes, now Russia is making a movie here as part of an attempt to overtake a country like America in the space sector.
If reports are to be believed, the film will be shot at the International Space Station (ISS), for which the entire crew, including the actress, will be dispatched on Tuesday. So, if the mission is successful, the Russian crew will surpass the Hollywood project that was announced earlier this year to be shot in space.
It is worth noting that earlier the US space agency NASA and Elon Musk’s company SpaceX had announced to work on a project with famous Hollywood actor Tom Cruise. Which was to be shot in space itself. But at the moment no information is being received on this. But Russia, on the other hand, may send the country’s 37-year-old actress Yulia Peresild and 38-year-old director Klim Shipenko from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in former Soviet Kazakhstan. These people, led by veteran cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, will travel to this space, where a film will be shot.
What is the name and story of this movie?
If sources are to be believed, the crew will leave for the International Space Station in the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft for a 12-day mission. On which the film ‘The Challenge’ will be shot. Different scenes of the film will also be shot here. According to the story, the film will be told about a female doctor who goes to the ISS to save an astronaut. By the way, information about this story was given by Roscosmos, Russia’s space agency. In an online press conference on Monday, director Shipenko, dressed in a flight suit, described the film as “an experiment” of his own.
When will the crew return?
Shipenko and Peresild are believed to return to Earth on October 17 in a capsule with astronaut Oleg Novitsky, who has been on the ISS for the past 6 months. However, this launch is now taking place at a time when Russia’s space industry is facing very challenging times. Where on the one hand, the Putin government here is giving the highest priority in the country to military spending at the moment. It should be noted that compared to the Soviet era, now Russia has lagged far behind in terms of innovation.
