Soyuz MS-19



Soyuz MS-19 is a Soyuz spaceflight launched on 5 October 2021, at 08:55:02 UTC. Soyuz MS-19 is the 147th flight of a crewed Soyuz spacecraft. The crew consisted of Russian commander Anton Shkaplerov, Russian film director Klim Shipenko and Russian actress Yulia Peresild. Shipenko and Peresild spent about twelve days on the International Space Station before returning to Earth aboard Soyuz MS-18, while filming a movie in space, Vyzov (The Challenge). The flight launched three crew members of the Expedition 66.Without an American astronaut, this launch marked the first time in more than 21 years (since Soyuz TM-30 in 2000) that a Soyuz crew only included Russian cosmonauts and travelers and the ship had to be upgraded to be piloted by a single person at launch.
