Lightsaber makes space travel

When the Discovery Shuttle takes off in October, Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber will be on board. 


The original prop was escorted to Houston’s Space Center by Stormtroopers and handed over to NASA in a formal ceremony.  Darth Vader attended and everything (he totally pigged out at the post-ceremony finger buffet, and one of the waiters reported seeing him drunk and crying at the end of the night).
