A group of Star Wars/model plane enthusiasts built a 21-foot replica of an X-Wing and launched it. Gizmodo has video of the launch and subsequent blowing apart. What strikes me the most is how the real life disintegration so closely matches the movie.

Someone built a desk to resemble a Tie Fighter.  If they made these available at IKEA I think the world as we know it would ground to a halt.

The “Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination” exhibit has opened at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. I’m so there, just like I was when the “Power of Myth” exhibit was at the Field Museum.
