The new NASA mission poster finally reveals the truth that many of us have suspected for a long time -- astronauts are actually Jedi masters. Well, at least they are for Expedition 45. Proud of these astronauts, Yoda would be.
In the latest promotional poster from NASA, astronauts and cosmonauts headed to the International Space Station for their next mission are dressed as Jedi masters complete with their own colored lightsabers. The poster, rendered in "Star Wars" font and design, also has the title "Space Station: Expedition XLV The Science Continues."
Included in the poster are NASA astronauts Kjell Lindgren and Scott Kelly; Russian cosmonauts Sergei Volkov, Oleg Kononenko and Mikhail Kornienko; and Japan's Kimiya Yui.
