Watch The Cast Flying To Space 

Yulia, Shipenko, and their guide Anton Shkaplerov, who is a trained and experienced cosmonaut, will be part of the crew. All the three dressed up in the space suits blasted off in the Soyuz Rocket from International Space Station on Tuesday at 4:55 a.m EST.

Their journey from Earth to Space lasted only three hours against the typical duration of 8-12 hours. Unlike other space adventures by Jeff and Richard, the film crew will stay longer in space. They will return on 17th October after shooting the movie scenes.

Both director and actress were trained for their first flight. Sharing the experience of training, Yulia said “It was psychologically, physically and morally hard.”

The movie is a story of a surgeon who goes to space to save a life of a cosmonaut. Yulia will be in the lead role whereas director Klim has chosen a real-life cosmonaut for it. Novitsky, the Russian cosmonaut, who is already in space for 6 months, will be seen in the movie.

This is, however, not the first time when any director has expressed the desire for such a project. Tom Cruise was supposed to be the first actor to hop on Musk’s SpaceX.
