NASA to screen ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ on the International Space Station

December 13, 2017

Being an astronaut living and working aboard the International Space Station shouldn’t mean that you have to miss out on much-anticipated movie releases like Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In fact, it should probably mean the opposite, which is why it’s great news that NASA will work with Disney to arrange a screening for ISS crew of the new movie, which is arriving in theatres in the U.S. this week.

They probably won’t get the big-screen experience – NASA tells Mashable that typically screening movies on the ISS means watching a digital copy on a notebook computer or one of the onboard projectors. But at least they’ll be safe from spoilers while orbiting the Earth, something I’m sure is a top concern for any astronaut.

I’ll be most interested in what real space-faring folks think about Porgs.
