Shuttle to carry lightsaber into space

The lightsaber wielded by Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars movie will be launched into space aboard the shuttle Discovery later this year.

NASA is carrying the lightsaber into space to help celebrate this year’s 30th anniversary of Star Wars. The shuttle’s launch, which will carry seven astronauts to the International Space Station, is scheduled for Oct. 23.


  1. I love Star Wars it’s like, my favorite movie of all time! I also want to be a NASA scientist (hence the nickname), so that’s extra cool!

  2. So what? It’s just a toy. Thier coming back, so it’s not like aliens will c it. What are the astronauts going to do? Hit each other in the head? (sarcasim)
