The year is 1985. The unmanned Soviet space station Salyut 7, which is in low Earth orbit, suddenly stops responding to commands from the Control Center. If the space station - the pride of Soviet space engineering - falls from the sky, not only will it damage the image of the country, it could also be a disaster bringing untold casualties. To investigate the failure and prevent the catastrophe, people must be sent to the station. Yet no one in history has ever attempted to dock an uncontrolled vehicle in space. To this day, this mission is considered to be the most technically challenging in the history of space exploration.Written by
I won't discuss politics or patriotism here this is not the subject.
I'm working in the space sector for more than 20 years and of course a big fan of this kind of mivie. If we compare Gravity and Salyut 7 I give a 10/10 to Salyut for its technical accuracy. Regarding the movie and story the climax is way much better than several U.S movies about the same subjects. Good to see that not only Americans can do great space movies.
