Star Wars: The Last Jedi opened nationwide in theaters this week and fans from all over are flocking to be among the first to see the brand new film.  In addition to opening around the country, the new film is also actually heading to space.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed that NASA will be streaming the film for astronauts who are currently on board the International Space Station at some point in the near future.  The news was originally revealed by space reporter Robin Smeemangal via her Twitter page.

NASA confirmed to EW that flight crews typically receive the films as digital files which allows them to then watch the films via a laptop or even an onboard film projector.
