Russian Film Crew Return To Earth After Shooting The First Movie In Space

A Russian film crew has come back to Earth after staying in the International Space Station filming scenes for the first movie in space. So, if all goes well, the crew will beat a Hollywood project announced by Tom Cruise in collaboration with Elon Musk’s SpaceX and NASA in 2020. After spending 12 days in space, the actors and director have finally returned safely to Kazakhstan.

The Space Adventure

The Russian astronaut Oleg Novitskiy, producer-director Klim Shipenko, and actress Yulia Peresild departed the International Space Station on their Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft. This report was verified by Nasa. 

As planned, Klim Shipenko and Yulia Peresild landed in Kazakhstan’s grasslands early on Sunday. The live footage of their safe landing was aired by Russia’s space organization,

It was cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky who helped the crew come back to earth. Oleg Novitsky had also been in the space station for six months,

The endeavor has not been without complications. Shkaplerov had to switch to manual control when the film team harbored at the ISS earlier this month.

When Russian flight controllers tested the MS-18 spacecraft slated to take the crew down to Earth on Friday, the ship’s thruster suddenly ignited. It destabilized the space center for 30 minutes, according to a Nasa spokesperson.

About The Movie

The film’s premise has been mainly kept under wraps and its budget, so no concrete details have been found out yet about the plot. However, we know that the storyline revolves around a physician sent to the International Space Station to save a cosmonaut. Shkaplerov and the two Russian cosmonauts presently in the ISS are believed to have cameo parts in the film.

Russia’s Space Accomplishments

The Soviet Union launched the first satellite, Sputnik. They also sent the first animal, a dog named Laika, the first man, Yuri Gagarin, and the first woman, Valentina Tereshkova, into space.

Modern Russia, however, has failed to develop in comparison to the Soviet period. Currently, its space sector is struggling for public financing as the Kremlin prioritizes military investment.

Its space program is still dependent on Soviet-designed equipment and has seen several failures, including corruption scandals and failed launches.

Russia is also slipping behind in the global space race, where it faces stiff competition from the United States and China. That’s because Beijing is recently demonstrating rising intentions in the field.

Closing Thoughts

As the Russian crew has come back to earth safely, we hope they have completed the shooting in space. It sounds naturally surprising that we will watch a movie shot in space in theaters soon. So, we hope to get more news on the movie plot and its release date from our sources. As soon as we get an update, we will inform you.
