Astronauts aboard the International Space Station have revealed they have celebrated Star Wars Day by screening one of the sci-fi movies. “Just watching @starwars. In space. No big deal,” Nasa tweeted from one of its one of its official accounts.

 It is not the only recent tie-in. Members of a forthcoming expedition to the ISS posed as Jedi knights of their official photo this year.

The ISS was recently fitted with a high-definition projector, which the astronauts also use for video conferences and displaying computer software.

 Commander Scott Kelly revealed last month that the team on board had also used it to watch the space disaster movie.
