… Real-World Droids and Lightsabers.

"Disney and Lucasfilm have released a new digital series on Facebook that's decidedly different from a lot of the other Star Wars marketing you'll see out there. "Science and Star Wars" explores how close real-world science has come to our favorite Star Wars technology. That technology includes an exploration of the closest thing we have to lightsabers in the real world, and a look at artificially intelligent robots to see how close they come to the Droids in a galaxy far, far away.

Over the course of 10 episodes, host Anthony Carboni and his rotating roster of scientific experts and celeb guests will experiment with technology that isn't actually so far, far away anymore (Also on deck: Jedi mind control). This very cool peek behind the scenes of incredible real-world science and technology connects Star Wars fans and enthusiasts in a new and exciting way. Who knows, if you get hooked on "Science and Star Wars", you might even find yourself working on the cutting-edge of sci-fi tech before long!

No disrespect to the author, however as my godson always teases me because I like Star Trek more. "Star Wars is about Faith/Religion and Star Trek is about Reason/Science!"

On a personal note, although a man of faith, I am prior Navy and I always considered Star Trek the US Navy in outer space!
Go Starfleet!

"Star Wars is about Faith/Religion and Star Trek is about Reason/Science!"

Some truth to that statement -- until JJ Abrams got a hold of Start Trek.
