It's not really a spoiler to say the the Oscar-nominated film Gravity could really put you off wanting to go into space.

But it seems like the astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) enjoyed the irony of watching it on their movie night.

The team up there just got a brand new HD projector.

Normally it would get used for things like conferences, but the astronauts also get to have the odd treat.

Commander Kelly is in the first month of his "Year in Space".

Nasa is looking at the effects on the body and mind of spending 12 months in space. Usual missions last somewhere between four and six months.

"While Scott Kelly is in space, his identical twin brother, retired Nasa astronaut Mark Kelly, will participate in a number of comparative genetic studies," says Nasa.

The pair are the only two siblings to have ever both spent time in space.

Commander Kelly has also been tweeting pictures of his living space - and explaining that his iPad is usually used for work, although he does have some TV shows recorded on there too.

While movie nights up in space do sound quite appealing, if you're addicted to being online, then it is still not the place for you.

Commander Kelly was asked if they have internet access on the ISS.
