THE LOSS OF ORIENTATION OF THE ISS IN SPACE. RETURN OF THE FIRST MOVIE CREW TO EARTH
With reference to RIA Novosti, news agencies circulated a message about the loss of orientation of the ISS during testing of the engines of the spacecraft Y.A. Gagarin. The loss of orientation of the ISS was reported by RIA Novosti, citing a NASA broadcast. “We received an emergency message from colleagues [from NASA] - a loss of orientation,” the spacecraft commander Anton Shkaplerov told the Mission Control Center (MCC). The International Space Station (ISS) lost its orientation in space while testing the engines of the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft (Y.A.Gagarin). The MCC explained that they were testing the motion control system (MCS) of the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft. The ISS is flying in the normal mode.
It is known that from October 5 to 17, director Klim Shipenko and actress Yulia Peresild were on the ISS. The director and actress took part in the filming of the Challenge film. Roskosmos reports that they filmed all the planned part of the materials.
On October 17 at 10:35 am local time, the descent vehicle of the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft landed in the steppe in Kazakhstan. The first film crew consisting of director Klim Shipenko and actress Yulia Peresild returned safely to Earth.
The attitude to filming in space among astronauts and experts was ambiguous. Many have criticized these plans. Someone does not consider the goals of popularization of space worth such costs.
Earlier in an interview with RBC, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Borisov said that he would not allow the budget to finance the shooting of the film.
