On Sunday, astronauts aboard the International Space Station got a sneak preview of a movie before it was released in theatres. The only problem is that movie was “The Martian”, a tale about an astronaut stranded alone on Mars, left for dead. It doesn’t exactly seem like appropriate viewing for those currently in space.
On a related note, I was fortunate enough to see the movie myself yesterday. It’s well worth seeing, particularly if you enjoyed the fabulous book.
