Salyut - 7
Produced: 2017 Genre: Duration: Director: Klim Shipenko Main Cast: Vladimir Vdovichenkov, Pavel Derevyanko, Aleksandr Samoylenko
The unmanned Soviet space station Salyut 7, which is in low Earth orbit, suddenly stops responding to commands from the Control Center. A rescue mission is undertaken. The astronauts must find the dead space station and — for the first time in history — dock to 20 tons of uncontrollable metal. Even though the team realized that they have very little chance to return to Earth alive, this risky way is the only solution.
They must not only enter the station but also restart its systems. Will two men be able to prevent the disaster and save the planet from the falling station? The rescue mission quickly turns into a dangerous and gruelling task. A detective story in space.
The film is based on actual events. The 1985 mission to Salyut 7 is considered to be the most technically challenging in the history of space exploration.
