The spacecraft will experience exorbitant burns at 11:42 p.m., and will perform an assisted parachute landing in the Kazakhstan steppe at 12:36 a.m. ET (10:36 a.m. Kazakhstan time) on October 17.
The helicopters will retrieve the crew and deliver them to Karaganda, Kazakhstan, and then fly to the training base in Star City, Russia, by plane.
Shkaplerov will remain on the space station and return to Earth in March with NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei and Roscosmos cosmonaut Pyotr Dubrov on the Soyuz MS-19 spacecraft. When Vande Hei lands after 355 consecutive days on the space station, it will have completed the longest space flight in U.S. history, according to NASA.
Novitskiy’s return to Earth on Sunday morning comes after spending 191 days in space on his third mission, and will have recorded 531 days in space on three different flights.
In addition to Chaplerov, Vande Hei, and Dubrov, the current space station crew includes European Space Agency astronaut Thomas Pesquet; NASA astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur; and Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency astronaut Akihiko Hoshide.
Filming in space
Some films have been shot aboard the space station, including a 2002 IMAX documentary narrated by Tom Cruise. “Apogee of Fear,” a 2012 eight-minute science fiction film, was also filmed in space by businessman and space tourist Richard Garriott, the son of an astronaut.
But Russia has become the first nation to shoot a feature film in space.
Peresild and Shipenko, known in Russia, were selected after the country’s space agency, Roscosmos, opened a competition for applicants in November ((2020?)). Peresild has appeared in several Russian films and television series, while Shipenko’s 2020 film “Serf” was one of the highest-grossing films in Russia.
The two civilians underwent rigorous training prior to their space visit. Along with the students, the actor and director prepared by doing centrifugal and vibration tests, training zero-gravity flights and parachute training, all covered by Channel One.
Other cosmonauts on board, including Novitskiy, helped and acted as part of the film crew, as production resources were more limited in the space environment.
