    STAR WARS: Where Science meets Imagination!


    Location: Boston, Museum of Science
    Dates: October 27, 2005 ? April 30th 2006

    Developed by the Museum in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination puts a 21st century spin on the saga's futuristic devices by exploring similar technologies in development today. For anyone who's ever wondered, the exhibition addresses the question: Will we have anything like droids or landspeeders someday? Using Star Wars as a springboard--as a shared image of what the future might look like--the exhibition encourages visitors to participate in the imaginative engineering processes that yield technological advancements. As they design, test, and build prototypes, visitors immerse themselves not only in the Star Wars universe, but also in the current scientific knowledge that underpins technologies--and could lead to a more technologically sophisticated future.

    With an array of Star Wars artwork, props, models, film clips, and documentary footage serving as a compelling backdrop, the exhibition centers around two key technological challenges in the films and in the real world: getting around, and interacting with ever more intelligent machines. In addition to exploring familiar Star Wars technologies such as Imperial walkers, Luke's landspeeder, and C-3PO, exhibition visitors examine existing prototypes such as hovercrafts, magnetic levitation trains, and real robots. They also experience hands-on design activities that reveal the methods today's engineers use to develop new ideas. Inspired by the imaginative vision of Star Wars and their own explorations of the engineering design process, visitors perceive the exciting roles they can play--as scientists, engineers, workers, consu

    Oh please let that AT-AT rumor be true! I don't normally collect SW Legos, but that Sail barge looks great.

    Good job as usual, PLJ! Just a note - the Rebelscum links aren't working properly. However, the problem seems to be with their site and not your links. if you click on them all you get is a blue 'Rebelscum' screen. Hopefully it will be fixed soon!

    Always a pleasure, PLJ! And thanks again for reminding me of that GG Darth Maul statue. I can't take my mind of it, especially now that I have experienced the full power and beauty of a Gentle Giant statue myself!
