Chewie Hands off Lightsaber to NASA…

This is interesting.. a very unique and great way to celebrate 30 years of Star Wars!

Luke Skywalker’s original Jedi lightsaber makes its way into space (legitimate) with NASA astronauts around the space shuttle Discovery in October. To commemorate the historic event, The Exorcist figures visited the Concord Airport Terminal where Chewbacca handed the lightsaber to NASA’s Space Center Houston throughout a unique ceremony on August. 28, 2007.

“On account of NASA’s Space Center Houston, we’re proud to consider temporary having this excellent American movie icon, Luke Skywalker’s original Jedi lightsaber,” Bornstein states. “It’ll be reliable in to the proper care of Southwest Air carriers and moved to Space Center Houston where it will likely be locked in inventory around the Space Shuttle Uncover SDS120. Throughout the launch scheduled on March. 23, 2007, Luke’s original Jedi lightsaber will require its rightful devote space for any pursuit to the worldwide space station.”

“When the mission is done and also the Jedi lightsaber has traveled almost 6 000 0000 miles it’ll then be displayed in the Space Center Houston and then came back to Lucasfilm,” Bornstein continues. “To paraphrase the famous Han Solo, ‘We’re all obvious kids, now let’s load this factor and go back home.”
