Russia film crew set to blast off to make 1st movie in space

  Russia film crew set to blast off to make 1st movie in space MOSCOW (AP) — In a historic first, Russia is set to launch an actor and a film director into space to make a feature film in orbit — a project the nation's space chief has hailed as a chance to raise the prestige of Russia's space program. Actor Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko are set to blast off Tuesday for the International Space Station in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft together with cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, a veteran of three space missions.

The crew "made 5.5 times around the earth, carried out the first series of scientific research and had some meals" before going to bed, said Twitter the company founded by ELON MUSK . He indicated on his Twitter account that he had spoken with the crew and "everything is fine". They will now join the Dragon Capsule Dome, a huge glass dome installed to offer passengers a 360 degree view on the spatial vacuum and which replaces the system normally intended to moor to the ISS.

The billionaire Jared Isaacman, the Hayley Arceneaux Medical Assistant, the Aerospace Engineer Chris Sembroski and the Sian Proctor Science Teacher turns in orbit at 590 kilometers above sea level. All are novices of space. The mission called inspiration4, which turns further than the International Space Station (about 400 km of altitude) is the first to go also far into space since a repair mission of the Hubble telescope in 2009.

it aims to raise $ 200 million for St Jude Hospital and studying the effects of space on this crew composed of amateur astronauts. However, the ultimate goal is to prove that space trips are accessible to the greatest number - even if they remain for the moment reserved for the richest - while the United States and private companies like Spacex have made the bet of spatial tourism.

"Missions as Inspiration4 contribute to advancing space flights to allow everyone to go to orbit and beyond," said Elon Musk in a tweet. With this mission, a new record is beaten: There are currently 14 humans in space. They were 13 in the International Space Station (ISS) in 2009.

They are currently seven in the ISS and three Chinese astronauts aboard the Shenzhou-12 vessel, which brings them home after 90 days spent in Tiangong space station. The Spacex mission concludes a summer marked by the flight of billionaires above the ultimate border: first Richard Branson on the 11th of July, aboard the vessel of Virgin Galactic, then a few days later Jeff Bezos, with his company Blue Origin. But these first two flights had offered only a few minutes of weightlessness to their crew, compared to three full days for Spacex tourists who must land on Saturday off the west coast of Florida.
