They also keep fit according to the flight program.
The Soyuz MS-19 ship with a movie crew was launched from Baikonur on October 5. It arrived at the ISS three and a half hours later. Shkaplerov did the docking of the ship and the station manually, as the automatic rendezvous system failed.
Filming on the ISS will take 12 days. Shipenko and Peresild will return to Earth on October 17 on the Soyuz MS-18 spacecraft together with cosmonaut Oleg Novitsky.
Earlier it was reported that the film crew visited the American segment of the station, where private medical conferences were held in the Columbus module.
