Tom Cruise to Shoot a Movie in Space with help of SpaceX Space
Tom Cruise is leaving for space next year for his coming movie.
This year, NASA and SpaceX announced that it was working with the movie star on a film that will shoot. This will be while in orbit aboard the International Space Station.
TMZ, cities the 2020-2023 ISS official manifest, Tom is set to head to the ISS on the SpaceX Crew Dragon rocket and capsule in October 2021.
Little is known about the film, but it is said to be an action-adventure movie. It is not a “Mission Impossible” flick. It will become the first movie ever filmed in space.
After the formal announcement of the news this spring, several retired astronauts spoke about what Tom would experience in space. “Going over Niagra Falls in a barrel while on fire is the only thing on Earth that compares to space travel.” Scott Kelly told TMZ.
Both Scott and Roy Bridges Jr. added that usage of the space toilet will be a key part of Tom’s intense space training.
Tom needs to move very slowly aboard the ISS. It’s not uncommon for first-time visitors to vomit because of zero gravity. According to Scott, who has spent more time in space than any human being.
Tom’s training will run the gamut of getting in and out of the space capsule and wearing a spacesuit. Plus, he’ll have to learn many things that we take for granted. Including, how to make food and actually get it in his mouth. He’ll also get training on how to sleep and clean himself while in the ISS.
The astronauts said the “Top Gun” star will have to learn to prepare for a space emergency, such as space debris flying into the ISS. He’ll also train on how to survive an ocean splashdown when he comes back to Earth.
