The movie titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi is an awesome vicarious experience in itself. The movie was watched by astronauts aboard the ISS. Among the other things at hand were bungee cord chairs and drink pouches.
Also a science fiction movie was among the paraphernalia. The pictures of the movie show X-wing pilot Poe Dameron among the actors and actresses appearing on screen aboard the ISS.
A projection screen was employed for the flick. Movie night on the ISS would be an enjoyable time for the astronauts.
Many of the astronauts were inspired in their times to apply for NASA positions by the science fiction genre. That is why Disney and NASA made sure that this holiday season, the astronauts aboard the ISS would not miss the opportunity of seeing the latest Star Wars film.
Two years ago, the astronauts happened to watch The Force Awakens aboard the ISS. The apparatus aboard the ISS is the ultimate movie theater of sorts.
Way back in 2009, Michael Barratt had to use his laptop to make a rickety movie station aboard the ISS. Today things have progressed way beyond those days.
In 2015, NASA installed an HDTV projector on the ISS. While in orbit around the earth between 330 and 453 km away from the surface of the planet, the movie will be watched.
Among the list of movies that were watched aboard the ISS through the times may be included: Moon, Alien, 2001: A Space Odyssey, The Martian, 12 Years a Slave, Airplane, Scott Pilgrim vs The World, The Dark Knight, The Bridge on the River Kwai and The Godfather.
Among the TV soap operas that have aired on the ISS are such wonderful shows as 24 and House of Cards. The Last Jedi must have been a proper experience for the handful of astronauts on the ISS.
