The Science of Star Wars: An Astrophysicist's Independent Examination of Space Travel, Aliens, Planets, and Robots as Portrayed by Jeanne Cavelos

Could the science fiction of Star Wars be the actual science of tomorrow?


-How close are we to creating robots that look and act like R2-D2 and C-3PO?

-Can we access a "force" with our minds to move objects and communicate telepathically with each other?

-How might spaceships like the Millennium Falcon make the exhilarating jump into hyperspace?

-What kind of environment could spawn a Wookiee?

-Could a single blast from the Death Star destroy an entire planet?

-Could light sabers possibly be built, and if so, how would they work?

-Do Star Wars aliens look like "real" aliens might?

-What would living on a desert planet like Tatooine be like?

-Why does Darth Vader require an artificial respirator?


Discover the answers to these and many other fascinating questions of physics, astronomy, biology and more, as a noted scientist and Star Wars enthusiast explores The Science of Star Wars.
