According to PEOPLE, Tom Cruise, NASA and SpaceX founder Elon Musk have partnered up to film Cruise’s next movie at the International Space Station.
NASA director Jim Bridenstine took to Twitter to confirm the thrilling news days after a report claimed Cruise would be filming his new movie in space.
“NASA is excited to work with @TomCruise on a film aboard the @Space_Station! We need popular media to inspire a new generation of engineers and scientists to make @NASA’s ambitious plans a reality,” Bridenstine tweeted with a picture of the International Space Station.
“Should be a lot of fun!” Musk tweeted in reply.

SpaceX is a company that developed a new spacecraft for “manned missions” since the year 1981. The company was founded in 2002, and Musk’s mission is to colonize Mars to make it a habitat where humans can actually live. Musk is currently highly successful for owning the Tesla company, which released new-age vehicles and is the leading company for electric cars.
