NASA officials fulfilled the wishes of a Star Trek fan who didn’t want to miss the premiere because of his space journey. They beamed the movie to the International Space Station. Three astronauts enjoyed the special preview of the movie at the station.
US astronaut Michael Barratt requested this movie before he boarded the space shuttle in March. He told NASA officials that he was a big fan of the Star Trek TV series and didn’t want to miss J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek.
NASA officials agreed and reformatted the movie so that the astronauts at the station can watch it on their laptop. NASA beamed the movie to the station on Friday morning.
