This company is planning to launch a film studio in space — but it's not the first time

Space Entertainment Enterprise is the company co\u002Dproducing an upcoming shot\u002Din\u002Dspace feature starring Tom Cruise

The plan failed to materialize, although at least the ISS is still there. The same year as the Spacehab announcement, Russian company MirCorp launched two cosmonauts to the abandoned Mir space station with plans to reactivate it for use as a filming facility. However, insufficient funding meant the station was de-orbited the following year, breaking up in a fiery re-entry not unlike something from a movie.

More On This Topic Elon Musk rejects claims he is hogging space: ‘A couple of thousand satellites is nothing’ S.E.E. is the company co-producing an upcoming shot-in-space feature starring Tom Cruise and directed by Doug Liman, though that project has yet to (literally) get off the ground. When it was announced in July of 2020, the untitled Tom Cruise/SpaceX Project was billed as being the first feature film to be shot in space, though that boast is also debatable.

Article content Return From Orbit is a Soviet film from 1984 about a daring rescue in orbit, and included scenes shot aboard the space station Salyut 7 and the Soyuz T-9 spaceship. This in addition to the many documentaries that have been filmed in space, such as the 1994 Imax film Destiny in Space , featuring Canadian astronaut Roberta Bondar. Of course, the urge to construct an orbiting production facility (or at least to claim to have done so) is almost as old as the Space Age. An Associated Press story from April of 1968 referred to the Apollo 7 spaceship as an “orbiting studio,” with the three astronauts making a live telecast to Earth. Mission commander Walter Schirra showed off his space-grown beard but would not admit to there being any grey in it. “My hairdresser’s the only one that knows,” he said, a reference to a 1957 commercial for Clairol hair products (“Only your hairdresser knows for sure”), and therefore possibly the first commercial shot in space. As the astronauts passed the camera around, Schirra quipped, “You’ve got three professional cameramen up here now, so when we get back we expect to get our union cards.” If that’s not the first studio in space, I don’t know what is.
