Filming location outside Earth

Contribution help:

Locations guidelines

This list is for filming locations, i.e. where the filming took place
and not necessarily the location portrayed in the movie - so do not add things like Mars for a science-fiction movie set there.

OK. That goes for science-fiction. What about documentaries?

The Finnish movie Mars kuvien takaa (2019) (aka The Other Side of Mars) takes place mostly in California but includes also moving image filmed via Mars rover in:

Dingo Gap, Mars
Mount Sharp, Mars (as Aeolis Mons, Mars)
Yellowknife Bay, Mars
The Kimberley Formation, Mars

I see your points on both sides of this one. I would argue that it is more fun for contributors to list and find the items in filming locations, so I think we should list the items there.

Thanks,
Will

I am actually interested about that, because there are a lot of titles which were partially filmed on Moon and in outer space, at least. Some fiction even.

Ships, airplanes, oil platforms and such in-between solid ground vehicles are regarded by international law as territory of country of their registration. Presumably this goes also for spacecrafts. If so, filming inside Apollo 11 took place in USA, but when the Lunar Module landed shooting continued on the Moon.

Nikolay and Kari,

This appears relevant.

https://er.jsc.nasa.gov/seh/law.html

... Following two official General Assembly resolutions and eight years of creative and arduous work, the General Assembly expanded upon the above suggestions by adopting on December 19, 1966 the recommendation of COPUOS for a Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, Including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies (9). The Treaty was opened for signature on January 27, 1967. This "Outer Space Treaty" or "Space Charter" has been characterized by some as a Magna Charta for space. Treaty provisions declare that:
(1) International law and the Charter of the United Nations shall apply to space activities.
(2) Outer space and celestial bodies are the province of mankind and shall be used only for peaceful purposes and for the benefit of all mankind.
(3) Nuclear weapons, weapons of mass destruction, military bases, and military maneuvers are banned from space.
(4) Outer space shall be free for exploration, use, and scientific investigation.
(5) There can be no claims of sovereignty or territory by nations over locations in space, "by means of use or occupation or by any other means."
(6) Jurisdiction over space objects launched from Earth shall be retained by the launching state.
(7) Private interests are recognized as having freedom of action in space, so long as a government or group of governments on Earth authorize and exercise continuing supervision over their activities. Signatory nations (seventy-eight at last count, including the United States and the Soviet Union) are therefore under a duty to oversee the activities of their citizens and commercial ventures in space.
(8) Governments are liable for damage caused on Earth by their space objects.
(9) Astronauts are "Envoys of Mankind" and are entitled to non-interference and all necessary assistance in distress.
(10) The natural environments of celestial bodies should not be seriously disrupted, and Earth must not be contaminated by extraterrestrial organisms. ...
In other words, what Kari wrote above is essentially correct.
