3, 2, 1… action! Russia launches film crew to shoot movie in space

A Russian cosmonaut who suffered a cardiac arrest during a spacewalk at the International Space Station will receive the emergency surgery he needs to survive the trip back to Earth now that a surgeon has been launched to the orbiting outpost.

Or rather that is the fictional plot line behind the real-life liftoff of Russian actress Yulia Peresild, producer Klim Shipenko and veteran cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov on a mission to film the first feature-length movie in space.
