The Force Is With These Astronauts Posing as Jedis Before Their Mission


Astronauts bound for the International Space Station have posed as Jedis holding lightsabers in a hilarious Star Wars-themed poster for their mission, Expedition 45.

Photographed are Russian cosmonauts Sergei Volkov (top right) and Oleg Kononenko (top left), Mikhail Kornienko (middle right), Japan’s Kimiya Yui (middle left), and NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren (bottom left) and Scott Kelly (bottom right). The poster’s tagline “the science continues” is especially apt after Kelly’s recent appearance on the cover of TIME. NASA will be studying his identical twin, former astronaut Mark Kelly, on Earth during Scott’s year-long stay in space, which is expected to set a single-mission record for an American astronaut.

Past publicity posters include a parody of Pirates of the Caribbean (Expedition 30), The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy(Expedition 42), and the Beatles’ album Abbey Road(Expedition 26).
