NASA Shuttle to Launch Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber

Stowed on-board the orbiter, in addition to a new module for the International Space Station, will be the original prop lightsaber used by actor Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker in the 1977 film “Star Wars”.

“The laser-like Jedi weapon is being flown to the orbiting outpost and back in honor of the 30th anniversary of director George Lucas’ franchise.”

How geeky, how sad, but how cool is that?
