For those lucky Star Wars fans living in the Seattle area, the Pacific Science Theater will be hosting the Where Science Meets Imagination Star Wars exhibit from March 19 to May 8, 2011. The exhibit will be focusing on several themes including the vehicles featured in Star Wars and how they relate to real world space ships and theoretical flying cars. There will also be a focus on droids and their robot counterparts on Earth. The last theme the exhibit will touch upon is how the inhabitants in Star Wars adapt to their environments with the use of technology. Planets getting a special spotlight include Coruscant, Hoth, Kashyyyk, and Tatooine. According to their site, the exhibit will feature more than 80 props from the films, exclusive video footage, and over a dozen interactive exhibits. This includes:

*Authentic props and costumes such as Darth Vader’s menacing black armor, Princess Leia’s ceremonial white gown and a full-size R2-D2.

*Luke Skywalker’s landspeeder from Episode IV.

*Amazing real-world robot technology, such as a personal assistant robot designed for NASA astronauts.

They also mentioned that there will be a full size replica of the Millennium Falcon’s cockpit where people can simulate the jump to lightspeed. For all the details, directions, and ticket prices, please check out the Pacific Science Theater’s official site here.
