Description: Former NASA astrophysicist Jeanne Cavelos examines the scientific possibility of the fantastical world of "Star Wars". Cavelos 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. Modern science has never been more page-turning as Cavelos answers questions like:
-- What kind of environment could spawn a wookie?
-- How close are we to creating robots like C3PO and R2D2?
-- Could light sabers possibly be built, and how would they work?
-- How might spaceships like the Millennium Falcon make the exhilarating jump into hyperspace?

Timed to publish with the video release of "Episode 1: The Phantom Menace", The Science of Star Wars will appeal to budding young scientists, the most seasoned science experts and to "Star Wars" fans everywhere.
