They train in Moscow on Vizov, the first movie ever shot in space
“For everyone, the situation is not uncommon, as there has never been such a short preparation. Neither astronauts nor space tourists,” commented Yulia Peresild, the protagonist of the feature film.
Peresild, who will travel to the International Space Station (ISS) on October 5 with director Klim Shepenko, said he also received a flight guide.
Preparation will consist of knowing the systems on board the Russian Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft in which you will fly and the Russian part of the orbital platform.
They must also become accustomed to the station’s zero gravity conditions, something they will train in an Il-76 lab plane, and learn to behave in the event of a forced landing in the water when they return to Earth.
“The flight training program differs from the plan for preparing professional astronauts, but includes mandatory elements for all crew members,” the training center reported.
Peresild, Shebenko and their reserve soldier, who will also complete four weeks of training after passing medical exams in mid-May, will receive diving suits upon request.
They will take off on October 5 from Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan and stay in the special station for approximately 12 days.
According to the Astronaut Preparation Center, astronaut Anton Shkplerof will work as a commander and flight engineer when traveling to the International Space Station with the actress and director.
