Major Star Wars exhibit coming to Orlando Science Center
« on: September 15, 2012, 09:54:20 AM »

Anyone interested in a FamiLAB gathering at the new Lucasfilm Star Wars exhibit at the Orlando Science Center?


It opens mid October and runs through May...

I've heard there is a Millenium Falcon simulator ride  ;D

Developed by the Museum of Science, Boston in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination is a 10,000 square-foot exhibit that explores the fantasy technologies depicted in the Star Wars films, the real science behind them, and the current research that may someday lead to remarkable real-life versions of the technologies seen in the film series.

With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and presented by Bose Corporation, Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination is the first exhibition to display costumes and props from all six Star Wars films with real-world technologies. The exhibit includes extensive video interviews with filmmakers, scientists and engineers; and hands-on components, including two large Engineering Design Labs, where visitors can build and test their own speeders and robots.
