The Force Is Strong With This International Space Station Expedition

Expedition 45's crew poster is outrageous. Six of the most capable human beings on this planet dressed up like six of the most capable creatures from other planets, Jedi Knights to be exact. Lightsabers, satellites that look like X-Wings and even a straight up Death Star are present. Now if I could only get my Jedi… » 2/13/15 4:47pm 2/13/15 4:47pm

What Would A Ride In The Millennium Falcon Actually Do To Your Body?

The Millennium Falcon pulls some pretty crazy stunts in the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And while we recognize Star Wars takes place in a fictional universe, we couldn't help but get pedantic about the physics of the scene, and the effects it might have on the human body. » 12/27/14 2:59pm 12/27/14 2:59pm

R2-D2 Lives In A Honda Element In Irvine, California
