According to Rogozin, the mission with filmmakers on the ISS was more important than just making a film – Space – Science and Technology

The two-member film team’s recent trip to the International Space Station (ISS) was more important than making a feature film in real space for the first time.

For example, the possibilities of surgical procedures in an environment of weightlessness have been specified. According to TASS, this was stated by the head of the Russian space agency Roskosmos, who presented the entire project of the mission related to the filming of a film with the working title Challenge at the Expo 2020 exhibition in Dubai.

According to Rogozin, for example, during the preparation and implementation of this expedition, a system of preparation of non-professional cosmonauts for space flight was developed. The technique of piloting the ship with only one person, the commander of the crew, was prepared, even in emergency situations. Methods of weightless surgical surgery were then tested at the station.

“How to get a doctor to check his actions. How to fix the patient so that he is immobile and it is possible to make the most accurate movements with surgical instruments. How to fix a tool, what to do with blood, which, unlike terrestrial conditions, does not run to the floor, but in the absence of gravity clings like fat to the tool. We worked on all this in orbit, “said Rogozin.

In this context, he noted that the development of such a methodology is necessary in order to be able to transport a doctor to the ISS in case of injury or illness of a crew member who cannot be transported back to Earth.

The film The Challenge is to tell the story of a doctor who has nothing to do with cosmonautics, but circumstances force her to fly into space to save the cosmonaut. The victim must be operated on in a non-gravity environment. The role of the doctor was played by the actress Julija Peresildová, with whom the director Klim Šipenko shot the images in space.

The pilot of the ship, Anton Škaplerov, had the opportunity to test the technique of steering the ship with only one member of the crew on arrival at the ISS. Due to a problem with the navigation system at the station, the landing failed in automatic mode and Škaplerov therefore took over manual control. However, he was not completely alone, although he would certainly handle the operation. According to Rogozin, Peresild assisted him in reading instructions to the commander from the manual.
