Russian Crew Will Return to Earth After First Filming in Space

A Russian actress and director are scheduled to return to Earth on Sunday (17/10) after 12 days of shooting on the International Space Station for the first film in orbit.

If the project goes according to plan, the Russian crew will beat a Hollywood project announced last year by the star “Mission Impossible” Tom Cruise with the United States Aeronautics and Space Administration (National Aeronautics and Space Administration/NASA) and SpaceX.

Actress Yulia Peresild, 37, and film director Klim Shipenko, 38, departed the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan earlier this month. They travel to the ISS with veteran cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov to shoot a movie scene “The Challenge”.

The film tells the story of a female surgeon who is sent to the ISS to save a cosmonaut. The cost of the film was kept secret.

Shkaplerov, 49, and two other Russian cosmonauts already on the ISS, reportedly got a small role in the film. [vm/ft]
