WASHINGTON – The crew of the International Space Station is boldly going where no one has gone before – to see the new Star Trek film.
The three astronauts were offered a sneak peak of Star Trek Into Darkness days before it opens Thursday on Earth, seeing it not in 3-D, but Zero-G.
NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries said the movie was beamed up to the outpost Monday and the two Russians and American on board had a day off Tuesday. That gave them a chance to view it on their laptops. It’s unclear if they watched it.
U.S. astronaut Chris Cassidy is taking part Thursday in a Google+ hangout that’s bringing together two Earth-bound astronauts, the stars of the film Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho, and its director and screenwriter.
