According to Space Shuttle Almanac, Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman (Swingers and all those Bourne movies) are going into space.
SSA shared a chart featuring countries and spacecraft scheduled to launch in the next three years, and under the October 2021 portion it reads ‘SpaceX Crew Dragon’ with a little picture of a space vehicle and beneath it the words ‘SpaceX Pilot Lopez Alegria, Tourist 1 Tom Cruise, Tourist 2 Doug Liman.’ There appears to be a seat available for ‘Tourist 3’, which will more than likely be occupied by a lucky and as yet unnamed twink. So far, there’s no word on why Cruise is going into space with Liman, but if I had to guess I’d say it has something to do with a movie. Cruise and SpaceX teamed up in May to start work on a $200 million movie about NASA, so that’s probably got something to do with it. Either way, Tom Cruise is even more annoying now he’s going into space.
With the arrival of the @MBRSpaceCentre Astronauts @astro_hazzaa and @Astro_Alneyadi at @NASA_Johnson this week, can we assume they are the two Emirati crew members who will make the 6 mth stay on the #ISS in Oct 2022? pic.twitter.com/b2Sdr06hUc
