Russia beats USA in race to shoot first movie in space


The Telegraph on Youtube shows that a Russian crew of two cosmonauts, a movie director and an actress took off for the International Space Station (ISS) on Tuesday to shoot the first movie in space, the latest twist in decades of Russia-US space rivalry.

The four launched on a Soyuz MS-19 craft at 08:55 GMT on their way to the station, which orbits Earth at an altitude of around 220 miles (354 km).

The 12-day Russian mission follows the launch of the first all-civilian crew aboard a rocket and capsule developed by SpaceX, which was founded by businessman Elon Musk.
