Last Tuesday, 37-year-old actress Yulia Peresild and 38-year-old film director Klim Shipenko went into space to shoot the film “Challenge”. The moment has become historical – for the first time a feature film will be shot in space.

The flight of the crew, which also included cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov, was watched by viewers via an online broadcast. And friends and colleagues of Yulia and Klim supported them at the Baikonur cosmodrome, where the rocket was launched. Among those who became a direct witness of this event were Christina Asmus, Alexander Petrov and his beloved Stasya Miloslavskaya. According to Christina, she has never experienced such strong emotions as on the day of her colleagues' flight into space.

For the first time I say the phrase: “I will tell my grandchildren!”. I experienced the most powerful emotions in my life yesterday! I thought that after childbirth there will be no stronger experiences. But what happened yesterday is a kick-ass! The launch of the rocket, the entry into orbit, during the docking, I generally thought I would turn gray! And this is not what was shown on TV, but real comments of a professional astronaut (who was in outer space three times), his real excitement, a system failure in the ship, the voice of the commander Anton Shkaplerov from the speakers in real time, which for the first time in history without help engineer manually docked with the station! I cried all day. And from happiness, and from shock, and from excitement. What the relatives felt, I can't even imagine. Klim Shipenko and Yulia Peresild, you are heroic people! The whole country believes in you and is waiting for you! And everything will definitely work out! Thanks to everyone who prepared this flight! Thanks to Baikonur, just wonderful people live here! It was incredibly cool!

Alexander Petrov received no less impressions from what he saw.

A lot of things I want to say and lay out … What I have experienced today … One of the main impressions in my life! I will definitely tell you! But the main thing is that they flew away and docked with the ISS! Klim, Julia, Anton, this is ****** (very cool. – Approx. Ed.)! Sorry, I don’t use foul language in public space! We are very happy! Film “Challenge”. The director, the cosmonaut, the screenwriter, the author of the idea, and my friend – Klim Shipenko!

– shared Petrov on Instagram.

Children and relatives of the crew members also came to the cosmodrome. Julia Peresild was supported by director Alexei Uchitel and their daughters Anya and Masha, and Klima Shipenko was supported by his wife Sofia Karpunina and their daughter Clementine.

The crew will stay on the ISS until October 17.
