Mission Impossible to Mission Control Tom Cruise to film in space

He gained his commercial piloting license after his role in Top Gun as Pete "Maverick" Mitchell, a hotshot US Navy pilot who has a unsafe and reckless flying style, and reportedly flew some aircraft in the long-awaited sequel to the 1986 classic due later this year.

Tom Cruise has been wowing audiences with his stunts for years, but now he's taking things to new heights. And not in the CGI sense.

This movie is planned to be filmed in worldwide space station which is orbiting 400 kilometres above earth. "We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA's ambitious plans a reality", he tweeted alongside a picture of the International Space Station.

He gave no details but the tweet followed a report in Hollywood trade outlet Deadline that Cruise was working with Tesla and SpaceX entrepreneur Elon Musk to make what would be the first feature film to be shot in space. It will become the 5th time in the US and 9th time globally where humans are launched on a brand-new spacecraft.

Deadline, the Hollywood-based daily newspaper, was the first to leak the project, which would be the first fictional film shot in space.

Walla Walla County now says no coronavirus parties occurred
The belief of the people who are conducting the parties is that they can be immune to the virus by first being infected with it. Earlier, local health officials identified a major outbreak in a Tyson Foods processing facility in the county.

The mission will be the final test flight for the Crew Dragon before NASA certifies the craft for the agency's Commercial Crew Program, a public-private initiative for regular manned flights to the space station. The last Mission: Impossible movie, 2018's Fallout, even had to take a break from filming after Cruise broke his ankle while jumping from one rooftop to another.

The shift is part of the long-term plan for the ISS.

NASA also issued a directive previous year that laid out plans to allow non-government space travelers to pay the space agency for use of the International Space Station's facilities.

Can you film a movie in that time?
