Elon Musk’s SpaceX prepares yet another landmark. This time it will launch the well-known actor Tom Cruise into space.
It is no longer the first time that it is said that one of Tom Cruise’s next films will literally be filmed in space. The new SpaceX timeline image confirms that the actor and director will travel in October 2021.
Tom Cruise will be one of the first tourists in space
SpaceX’s goal is not just to go to the red planet. Elon Musk has already mentioned that space travel in the tourist segment will be common in the future and everything will have to start somehow.
After sending astronauts into space for the first time, SpaceX’s timeline refers to “space tourists” for the first time.
The trip will be led by the experienced astronaut Michael López-Alegría, an astronaut who already has extensive experience in space and “space tours” at the International Space Station.
Everything to record a clip for a movie
We still don’t know what Tom Cruise’s movie will be in space. However, it will certainly be one of the best scenarios that Tom Cruise will shoot. No “green screens” or strings that leave you hanging. Everything will happen in zero gravity in space.
We do not know yet how long that trip will take or whether the team will end up staying for a few days at the International Space Station.
We only know that there is a plan to launch it into space and that it will be one of the first space tourists. A common mortal without the intense training that astronauts train a good part of their life.
