9 Minutes Before Space is Russian television production on preparations made by first time cosmonaut at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan! This documentary shows many aspects of the spaceflight, including some quite unique things like view of inside the Soyuz capsule during its reentry, how space technologies come back to Earth to resolve some problems here on the ground, the view from the top of the fueled Soyuz rocket ready to go, and some other interesting stuff. The program captures cosmonaut’s immediate experience in a powerful way. A cosmonaut describes experience of extra gravity, during ascent, as a warm blanket coming over you and after a while just can’t seem to catch your breath. Everyday events on the International Space Station are described much more intimately than ever seen!
