We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA's ambitious plans a reality.

Tom Cruise is reportedly working with Elon Musk's SpaceX company and NASA to shoot a narrative feature film in outer space. Elon Musk replied to Bridenstine's post by acknowledging how fun it would be!

"It's not a Mission: Impossible film and no studio is in the mix at this stage", Deadline reports.

The seventh film in that series is set to hit screens next year after production was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Cruise is no stranger to taking daring risks while making his highly successful action movies.

Tom Cruise is well-known for his incredible stunts in his Mission: Impossible films. He flew fighter jets for the upcoming Top Gun: Maverick, hung off the side of a plane as it took off in Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation in 2015 and climbed the Burj Khalifa skyscraper in Dubai - the tallest building in the world - for Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol. This isn't even his first sci-fi space movie, Oblivion is.

"I had a contract with the Russians in 2000 to go to the International Space Station and shoot a high-end 3D documentary there".

That document also laid out how much certain services could cost: Use of life-support equipment - and the toilet - were listed at US$11,250 per day. Several well-heeled space tourists have visited the station over the years as well. Maintaining the United States portion of the orbiting laboratory, where astronauts conduct scientific and commercial research, annually costs USA taxpayers about $3 billion to $4 billion, according to a 2018 government report.
