Film crew returns to Earth after filming the first movie in space

A Russian film crew is set to return to Earth later Sunday after spending 12 days on the International Space Station in the world’s first effort to produce a feature film in outer space.

The space capsule will land in the steppes of Kazakhstan at 6:35 a.m. (0435 GMT). Russian actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim will return
Shipenko returns to Earth, along with cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky, who has been on the International Space Station since last April.
Their journey is expected to take more than three hours.

The film has a tentative name, “The Challenge”, and tells the story of a doctor, played by Peresild, who is forced to travel to the International Space Station to save the life of an astronaut.

Russia says this is the first feature film to be shot in space rather than in studios on Earth. The United States is also planning to shoot a movie
There, but no date has been set.

The Russian space agency, Roscosmos, said the aim of the film was to make the industry more attractive to young people.
