Luke's 'Saber Headed For Space


Posted August 28, 2007 - By Mike D'Alonzo

The original prop lightsaber from Star Wars will be headed to space on board the Shuttle Discovery, as part of the celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the movie. That's not the geekiest thing about it, laws no! That would be the fact that the lightsaber will be handed off to the astronaut who will keep it safe in space by a man dressed in a Chewbacca suit.

Had enough geekery? Not by miles, son. How about the fact that the prop will be escorted by a batallion of costumed stormtroopers and R2-D2 and a parade of Hummers? Are you starting to get the feel for what sort of event this will be yet? Yeah, we thought so. We would just like to see the footage of the new astronauts in their polo shirts playing with a lightsaber during moments of anti-gravity. Perhaps while chasing balls of soup through the air.

Wouldn't that be fun?
