The six astronauts aboard the International Space Station got a live broadcast of the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The Super Bowl was out of this world this year – literally.
NASA beamed the game to six astronauts currently aboard the International Space Station, Space.com reported. NASA asked the astronauts on Feb. 1 if they wanted to see the game and the response was "definitely."

The astronauts saw the game live. NASA's Mission Control at the Johnson Space Center in Houston hooked the astronauts up when the Baltimore Ravens faced off against the San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans.
Two American astronauts are among the space station crew – commander Kevin Ford and flight engineer Tom Marshburn.

The International Space Station is roughly the same size as a football field and hosts a Canadian and three Russian cosmonauts in addition to the American crew members.
Space has already stolen part of the Super Bowl stage. AXE body spray is running an Apollo Space Academy contest to launch 22 people into space.
Other Super Bowl commercials will also jump into the space race. Kia, for example, plans a "Space Babies" commercial.
