Scott Kelly watched ‘Game of Thrones’ twice during year in space

Welcome to Westeros — in space.

Astronaut Scott Kelly revealed Tuesday that he spent his year on the International Space Station watching “Game of Thrones.”

“It was so good, I binged it twice,” he said Tuesday during a Television Critics Association panel.

Kelly spent 342 days in space with Russian astronaut Mikhail Korniyenko from March 27, 2015 to March 2, 2016.

He and Korniyenko were part of a study into the physical and psychological effects of an extended stay in space.

Kelly is currently promoting “Beyond a Year in Space,” the sequel to “A Year in Space.” The movie follows his last day in space and subsequent return to Earth, as well as the next group of astronauts as they prepare for their own journeys.

“Beyond a Year in Space” premieres Nov. 15 on PBS.
