  • STAR WARS: Where Science meets Imagination

    BOSTON (Reuters) - It's a "Star Wars" fan's dream -- the first public display of props and costumes from all six films in the series, including a replica cockpit of Han Solo's asteroid-battered Millennium Falcon.

    But the $5 million exhibit goes beyond entertainment and turns "Star Wars" into a educational tool for science and technology, fields in which U.S. dominance faces a challenge from a new generation of engineers in Asia.

    "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination," opening on Thursday in Boston, was developed by "Star Wars" creator George Lucas's LucasFilm Ltd. and Boston's Museum of Science to give some scientific basis to the fantasy of the films.

    Guess they didn't hear about this show sans the Millennium Falcon...
