There's no truer commitment to Star Wars than watching the newest movie while actually in space. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) are planning a special screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi while orbiting the Earth. This is a much more enticing option than the previously screened Gravity.

We don't know exactly when or how, but a NASA representative confirmed to Mashable that the ISS crew will indeed watch The Last Jedi

"They typically get movies as digital files and can play them back on a laptop or a standard projector that is currently aboard," NASA's Dan Huot told Mashable.

Star Wars isn't the most accurate franchise when it comes to space travel, but it's also set a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. The technology and physics feel far more removed from our known universe and scientific law, while a movie like Gravity or The Martian feels too close to home — especially if you're a long way from it.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases Dec. 15.
