The astronauts on Expedition 45 have dressed up as Jedi warriors - lightsabers and all - for a Star Wars-themed official team portrait.

Nasa astronauts have a long history of recreating famous scenes for their official posters - with the Beatles' Abbey Road album cover, Star Trek and the Pirates of the Caribbean all featuring in the past.

The crew - Scott Kelly, Oleg Kononenko, Mikhail Kornienko, Sergey Volkov, Kjell Lindgren and Kimia Yui - will travel to the International Space Station in September.

You can see the full Expedition 45: The Science Continues poster below and see the previous Nasa portraits here.
