Star Wars Exhibit

I thought I would share some random photos from the "Star Wars" exhibit at the California ScienCenter mentioned in the previous blog entry. I'm not sure if I can say that the "science" in Star Wars is that accurate, but it's a great story/movie. If you click on the photos below, you can see a slightly larger image.

This is Luke Skywalker's landspeeder which is sort of like a hovercraft. In the era of computer graphics, it still nice to see a "hardware" model for an imaginary object.

This is a closeup of Luke Skywalker's prosthetic hand. Who knows? It would be beneficial to have mechanical body part replacements -- just in case we might need an extra hand.

Below is C-3PO with some of his internal wiring exposed. It's good that they still use color coding for electrical wiring in the future.

There were many models on exhibit of spacecraft that were used in the movie. This is a rebel alliance X-wing starfighter.

Master Yoda peers outward from behind the glass. For someone 900 years old, he's looking pretty good.

And this guy, I believe, is one of the snow creatures from Episode V.

And here's an Imperial TIE fighter from the evil Empire. Not sure what kind of propulsion system was used, but they're very fast and maneuverable (in the movie, that is).
