Space Movie Premieres In Space

Astronauts aboard the International Space Station were given an advance screening of upcoming Matt Damon space movie, The Martian. Scott Kelly and Kjell Lindgren even tweeted about it, with Lindgren saying, "What a treat to watch The Martian while in space and see reflections of our own journey to Mars." - A fact that, if you think about it, in and of itself is pretty cool.  I bet they get great coverage up there.

Lindgren and Kelly have read the Andy Weir novel that serves as the basis for The Martian and Lindgren said in an interview withAP that he was hoping to have a copy of the film beamed up to space. The astronauts also spoke by phone with Damon, who was visiting NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
