The sOyuz MS-19 ship with the kinoekipazh launched from Baikonur

BAIKONUR, October 5 - RIA Novosti. Actress Julia Peresild, director Klim Shipenko and the cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov launched to the ISS from the Baikonur cosmodrome on a sOyuz-2.1a rocket, RIA Novosti correspondent reports from the cosmodrome.

"kInoekipazh" went to the ISS for the film "The Challenge", which will be the first picture in the history of cinema with the filming of professional actors in space.

According to ROSCOSMOS, approximately 9.5 minutes after the rocket is detached from the launch pad, the sOyuz MS-19 spacecraft will separate from the third stage of the sOyuz-2 rocket.1a" and will take a course to the ISS.

For the first time in history, the sOyuz spacecraft will be piloted to the ISS by one commander without the help of a professional flight engineer. The history of the SOYUZ spacecraft knows only a few examples of single flights, now it has been upgraded to make it possible to deliver two non-professionals to orbit at once, led by a cosmonaut commander.

Approximately 3 hours and 17 minutes will pass from the moment of takeoff from Baikonur to the docking with the ISS. These are two orbits around the Earth and slightly longer than the record set last year, when the sOyuz MS-17 flew to the station in 3 hours and 3 minutes.

It is expected that at 15.12 Moscow time "kinoekipazh" will dock to the module "Dawn" of the Russian segment of the ISS. The opening of the hatches and the crew's transfer to the station are scheduled for 17.05.

An international expedition consisting of Russians awaits them on the ISS Oleg Novitsky and Peter Dubrov, Americans Mark Vande Hai, Shane Kimbrough and Megan MacArthur, Japanese Akihiko Hoshide and the Frenchman Tom Sand.

Russian cosmonauts on the ISS will help the "cinema crew" in the filming of the film.

Peresild and Shipenko will spend 12 days on the ISS. Their landing in the Kazakh steppe is scheduled for October 17.
