  • How possible is this galaxy “far, far away”?

    In this entertaining and informative work, former NASA scientist and Star Wars fan Jeanne Cavelos explores the scientific possibilities and questions raised by the Star Wars films and books. From Star Wars: A New Hope to The Phantom Menace, Cavelos leaves no stone unturned in her attempt to question the basic scientific principles underlying the technology of America’s most popular science fiction series. Enlisting the aid of leading experts from today’s cutting-edge scientific disciplines, Cavelos writes in an accessible, easy-to-read style that will appeal to both young science enthusiasts and the most wizened scholars.

    This is science at its best. Here you’ll learn: the principles of quantum physics as exemplified by the Millennium Falcon; the latest technological advances in the field of robotics; how close we are to creating our own R2-D2 — and C-3PO — like robots; Einstein’s theory of relativity and how it affects space travel in the films; all about wormholes, black holes, hyper drive, and so many other mind-blowing scientific facts. The perfect gift for the budding young scientist, science enthusiasts everywhere, and all Star Wars fans, The Science of Star Wars is a fantastic book that even Yoda would love.
