There Was A Showing Of "The Last Jedi" In Space And It Looked So Delightfully Geeky

I don't know if you heard, but Star Wars: The Last Jedi came out last weekend, and if you haven't seen it, you should because it's bitchin'.

Lucasfilm

You can see it in 2D, 3D, 4D, or maybe at a drive-in (if those still exist).

But the coolest way to see the movie isn't for any of us terrestrial n00bs, because it's in motherfreaking space. The International Space Station had a showing of The Last Jedi, and geek started oozing out of my pores.

NASA Astronaut Mark T. Vande Hei tweeted this picture of "movie night."

THAT'S RIGHT. They took a galaxy far, far away 240 miles above us into orbit.

Naturally, there were questions.

But it's probably good that they see the film so they know how to take out Imperial TIE fighters that whiz past.

It's scientific. It's geeky. It's wonderful. I love it. Where do I get tickets?
