The Force is with the International Space Station Astronauts

"'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' hits cinemas around the world this week, but it’ll also be showing in one extremely appropriate venue off-planet: the International Space Station.

Astronauts will be able to watch the new 'Star Wars' in orbit a few hundred miles above the surface of the Earth using one of the laptops or projector onboard the space station.

Space reporter Robin Seemangal tweeted the news last night, with a spokesperson for NASA confirming the plans to Inverse.

'[I] can confirm the crew will be able to watch it on orbit,' NASA Public Affairs Officer Dan Huot told Inverse. 'Don’t have a definitive timeline yet. They typically get movies as digital files and can play them back on a laptop or a standard projector that is currently aboard.'"
