Vyzov, Or The Challenge

online mock test for UPSC

Sixty years after the Soviet Union beat its rival superpower United States to become the first state to send a human into space, its successor Russia has trumped the US in another kind of space race — shooting the first feature film in orbit.

  • Director Klim Shipenko and actor Yulia Peresild flew to the International Space Station (ISS) in a Soyuz MS-19 aircraft to film a sequence for Vyzov (The Challenge).
  •  The duo was accompanied by cosmonaut Anton Shkaplerov.

The Challenge

  • Vyzov, the Russian film, follows a cosmonaut who loses consciousness after space debris hits him in the middle of a flight.
  •  His condition prevents him from returning to Earth, and a surgeon is flown to the ISS to operate on him in zero gravity. The film has been co-written by Shipenko with Bakur Bakuradze.


The project is backed by Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, the state-run Channel One and the Yellow, Black and White studio.
