A friend recently remarked on the Book of Face that science does actually have the ability to make lightsabers. But most scientists prefer to spend their efforts on more worthwhile endeavors, such as discovering the “hemihelix”.
In the immortal words of this friend,
“Look, I’m not saying the hemihelix won’t end up curing cancer or something — I’m just saying, WHERE’S MY LIGHTSABER?!”
I can only concur, and invite you all to sign a lightsaber petition and send it to the nearest scientists with a degree in . . . . physics? what type of physics would produce a lightsaber, astrophysics?
But before you run off to do that, I have two things for you to watch.
The first is beautiful, excellent, and well done.
The second is a terrible idea, horribly made, and with very bad props. (Don’t worry, I found the edited version that contains only the BEST 15 minutes of an otherwise hour-long program.)
Guess which one was done professionally.
