Are current operations on the International Space Station really that different from the events that took place a long time ago in the Star Wars universe? A new poster released by NASA would have us think not.
While preparing to become the first-ever year-long guests aboard the ISS, Expedition Crew 45 released this hilarious image yesterday and it will make your inner geek jump Cloud City high with joy. The crew consists of Chinese American Kjell Lindgren, Japanese Kimiya Yui, Russians Oleg Kononenko, Sergei Volkov, and Mikhail Kornienko, and American Scott Kelly.
Leave it to the force to bring together “International Space Station Expedition XLV: The Science Continues.” Expedition Crew 45’s journey will begin in September.
The force is strong with these astronauts! But why did they make a ‘Star Wars’-themed poster? Find out here!
