The Science of Star Wars: An Astrophysicist's Independent Examination of Space Travel, Aliens, Planets, and Robots as Portrayed in the Star Wars Films and Books - Taschenbuch

2000, ISBN: 0312263872

[SR: 742058], Paperback, [EAN: 9780312263874], St. Martin's Griffin, St. Martin's Griffin, Book, [PU: St. Martin's Griffin], 2000-05-05, St. Martin's Griffin, Former NASA astrophysicist Jeanne Cavelos examines the scientific possibility of the fantastical world of Star Wars. She explains to non-technical readers how the course of science might soon intersect with such fantasies as interstellar travel, robots capable of thought and emotion, habitable alien planets, bizarre intelligent life forms, high-tech weapons and spacecraft, and advanced psychokinetic abilities. She makes complex physics concepts, like quantum mechanics, wormholes, and Einstein's theory of relativity both fascinating and easy to comprehend. The Science of Star Wars does for Star Wars what Lawrence Krauss's bestselling The Physics of Star Trek did for the Star Trek universe. Cavelos answers questions like:* How might spaceships like the Millennium Falcon make the exhilarating jump into hyperspace?* Could a single blast from the Death Star destroy an entire planet?* How close are we to creating robots that look and act like C-3PO and R2-D2?* Could light sabers possibly be built, and if so, how would they work?* Do Star Wars aliens look like "real" aliens might?* What kind of environment could spawn a Wookie?* What would living on a desert planet like Tatooine be like?* Why does Darth Vader require an artificial respirator?* Can we access a "force" with our minds to move objects and communicate telepathically with each other?, Jeanne Cavelos says, "Star Wars fueled my interest in space exploration and the possibility of alien life," leading her to a career in astrophysics. While these movies have inspired her, she admits that may not have been their intention. In creating the part science fiction/part fantasy/part myth that is Star Wars, George Lucas did not seek to create a futuristic universe that agreed perfectly with our current understanding of science.... How realistic, how possible, is this galaxy far, far away? The answer when A New Hope first came out was "not at all." But a strange thing has happened in the years since Star Wars first came out. Science is beginning to catch up with George Lucas. Cavelos looks at Lucas's planets, aliens, droids, technology, and Force with both rationality and affection. The droids R2-D2 and C-3P0, among others, become more interesting and almost credible after her consideration. The element of Star Wars that is most true to science is the sense of wonder it calls forth, which has very little to do with how close it is to a possible future. Or, as Steve Grand, director of the Cyberlife Institute, said to Cavelos: "I never try to let scientific implausibility get in the way of a good story!" --Mary Ellen Curtin, 521000, Performing Arts, 1474, Dance, 11160393011, Individual Directors, 1099186, Magic & Illusion, 271614011, Reference, 2154, Theater, 1, Arts & Photography, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4495, History & Criticism, 4484, Movies, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 194810011, Genre Films, 4484, Movies, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 194811011, Theory, 4484, Movies, 86, Humor & Entertainment, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13443, Astronomy, 13439, Astronomy & Space Science, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 13445, Astrophysics & Space Science, 13439, Astronomy & Space Science, 75, Science & Math, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 25, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 16190, Fantasy, 16211, Gaming, 16272, Science Fiction, 12038, Writing, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4556, Popular Culture, 11232, Social Sciences, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491552, Film & Television, 684277011, Performing Arts, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 491700, Astronomy & Astrophysics, 468216, Science & Mathematics, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 468214, Social Sciences, 491448, Anthropology, 491450, Archaeology, 491452, Criminology, 491460, Gay & Lesbian Studies, 491458, Gender Studies, 491454, Geography, 684299011, Military Sciences, 491464, Political Science, 491490, Psychology, 491478, Sociology, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
