NASA has confirmed that the movie will be available aboard the ISS in the near future. “[I] can confirm the crew will be able to watch it on orbit,” NASA Public Affairs Officer Dan Huot told Inverse, after a spaceflight reporter tweeted the news. “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.”
As The Verge reports, astronauts often enjoy movies on the ISS, with access to a digital library that includes space classics such as 2001: A Space Odyssey and Aliens.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on Friday. Hopefully, the astronauts can watch it shortly thereafter and avoid spoilers from us earthlings.
