Moscow: The Russian actress and director on Tuesday left on her journey to space to shoot the world's first film in space. Actress Yulia Peresild and director Klim Shipenko left for the International Space Station on Tuesday in a Russian Soyuz spacecraft.

Spacecraft departs from Baikonur

Let us tell you that the veteran traveler Anton Shkaplerov, who has completed three space journeys with these two, has also gone. His spacecraft Soyuz MS-19 took off from the Russian Spacecraft Launch Center in Baikonur, Kazakhstan at 1:55 pm as per the schedule. Space officials said all aboard the spacecraft were feeling well and that all systems on the spacecraft were working normally.

This film will be shot in space

Know that actress Yulia and director Shipenko will shoot a scene in space for a new film 'Challenge'. Yulia, who plays the role of a doctor in the film, goes to the space station to rescue a crew member who is suffering from heart ailment. These people will return with the second astronaut after staying on the space station for 12 days.

On Monday, before taking off, actress Yulia Peresild admitted that it was difficult to match the strict discipline and extremely tough training during training. It was tough mentally, physically and in all forms. But I think once we achieve the target then everything will not be so difficult and we will remember all this with just a smile. Shipenko, who has made many blockbuster films, also called his training very difficult.

Roscosmos chief responds to critics

Dmitry Rogozin, head of Russia's state-run space corporation Roscosmos, is also playing an important role in this project. He dismissed the criticism of the Russian media in this regard, calling it a matter of pride for the country in the field of space.
