Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Heading to Space

Newser — Michael Harthorne

Star Wars is so popular now you can't even escape it by leaving the planet. The Verge reports astronauts aboard the International Space Station will soon be able to watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which opens here on Earth this Friday.

“[I] can confirm the crew will be able to watch it on orbit,” NASA spokesperson Dan Huot tells Inverse. “Don’t have a definitive timeline yet." The International Space Station has a library of about 500 or so digital films, which astronauts watch on their days off or while working out on the ISS treadmill or on movie nights. They'll be able to watch the new Star Wars on the station's laptops or a projector. But do they have Junior Mints in space?
