Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination Pt. 1

Jan '14-Feb '14 030

I love Star Wars.

I really can’t say that enough, so I’ll say it again: I love Star Wars.

And there’s this exhibit that’s been touring the country, of Star Wars models, props, and costumes.  My husband and I went to see it when it came our way, and we spent hours there.  And took tons of pictures.

I was a kid when the original trilogy was re-released in theaters, and my dad was so excited to take his kids to see them.  I didn’t really understand why he was so excited, and then I saw the movies.  And since then, I haven’t been able to get enough of Star Wars.

Maybe some of you are the same way.  Anyway, I thought I’d start out with some ships and other transportation, and we’ll see where it goes from there.

This x-wing model was truly a wonder to behold.

As was the Millennium Falcon.  I nearly teared up!

Luke’s landspeeder.  Less exciting, but still cool.  This one fits real people.

Hate on the new trilogy all you like; when I saw Episode I, all I wanted to do was build a pod racer in my backyard.

Here’s me, having a blast on Tatooine.  The shirt I’m wearing, by the way, is here.

    What was really cool for me was introducing my nephews to Star Wars and watching how thirty years later it still was able to capture their imagination.

What do you think about it?
