On October 16 (local time), due to a malfunction in test rocket injection conducted by the Soyuz spacecraft that was docking at the International Space Station, the normal orbital posture temporarily collapsed, causing an emergency in which the entire aircraft tilted.
Russian space agency Roscosmos issued a statement on its website, explaining that the ISS and its crew were not at risk. However, in July, Russia also fixed an experimental module on the ISS and malfunctioned the rocket.
The problem arose while testing the engine of the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft, which had been on the ISS since April. Russian astronaut Oleg Nowitzki conducted a test to inject the Soyuz rocket for a certain period of time according to the procedure, but according to NASA, the injection did not stop even after the prescribed time passed.
Therefore, the ISS turned 57 degrees and issued a control out-of-control warning. Russian authorities and NASA said they ordered the ISS crew to start an emergency protocol right after the problem and were able to regain control of the station within 30 minutes.
For reference, the Soyuz MS-18 in question was carrying out this injection test to return to the ground with three people on the ISS on October 17th. Two out of three were civilians who visited OSS for filming, and they returned to the ground. Related information can be found here.
Meanwhile, on the afternoon of October 17th, the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft carrying Russian cinematographer Klim Schopenko, actress Yulia Peresild, and astronaut Oleg Nowitzki, who was filming their first feature film on the International Space Station, returned to the ground on the afternoon of October 17th.
The Challenge, which is scheduled to be the first feature film filmed on the ISS before Hollywood, is produced in collaboration with broadcasting station Channel One, Yellow, Black and White production, and Russian space agency Los Cosmos. do.
Astronaut Nowitzki returned with the film team after staying on the ISS for a long time since April 9 on the Soyuz MS-18 mission. As a crew member of the film crew was on board, the period of stay of the two people, who had been staying together for a long time, was extended by six more months.
In addition, as a professional actress, Julia Pereschild will remain as a person who went into space a week earlier than William Shatner, who recently boarded the Blue Origin spacecraft. In any case, it is not yet known when The Challenge filmed on the ISS will be released, but it is expected that world-famous stars such as Tom Cruise will rise and pioneer the beauty of filming on the ISS.
