Famous American actor Tom Cruise wants to shoot a film in space aboard the International Space Station (ISS). NASA will collaborate on this project and said it is delighted, intending at the same time to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists.
NASA behind the project
L’Espace, a subject that still arouses public passion. Since the cinema started, thousands of films on this theme have been made. Even today, there is no shortage of subjects because space agencies are planning more than ever a return to the Moon and the establishment of a human colony on the planet Mars. As Deadline magazine explains in an article published on May 4, 2020, actor Tom Cruise wants to shoot a film on the ISS. However, the media notably relayed a tweet from Jim Bridenstine, director of NASA, who will participate in the project.
“NASA is delighted to be working with Tom Cruise on a film aboard the ISS! We need the popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to create real and ambitious projects, “said the speaker.
Should be a lot of fun!

In response to this tweet, Elon Musk launched an “It should be fun! ” However, nothing certifies an involvement of SpaceX in this film, despite the rumors on the matter.
The first film shot in space
Deadline magazine reported that few details were available regarding the content of the film. However, the latter should not be a continuation of the Mission series: impossible. In addition, the Covid-19 epidemic provides no certainty. In February 2020, Paramount Pictures was already forced to suspend filming in Italy of the last part of the series. The date of the start of filming aboard the ISS remains a mystery.
In addition, it was recalled that shooting such a film in space never happened. Thus, Tom Cruise may well become a pioneer in this field and make history.
On the NASA side, the lunar projects were shelved in mid-March, also due to the epidemic. However, the agency still dispatched three astronauts to the ISS on April 9. A week later, NASA and ESA said they wanted to make their satellites available to fight the Covid-19 epidemic.
