Science: Space not the final frontier for viewing movies
The crew of the International Space Station is boldly going where no one has gone before, to see the new Star Trek film. The three astronauts were offered a sneak peak of "Star Trek Into Darkness" days before it opens Thursday on Earth, seeing it not in 3-D, but Zero-G.
NASA spokesman Kelly Humphries said the movie was beamed up to the outpost Monday and the two Russians and American on board had a day off Tuesday. That gave them a chance to view it on their laptops. It's unclear if they watched it.
U.S. astronaut Chris Cassidy is taking part Thursday in a Google+ hangout that's bringing together two Earth bound astronauts, film stars Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho, and its director and screenwriter.
