30 years after Star Wars propelled us to that place far far away..an actual piece of the Star Wars legacy will be headed into Space.

Apparently the original prop of Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber from the first Star Wars movie will be sent into space aboard the space shuttle Discovery in October.

What i’d like to know – officially or otherwise – is if astro or cosmonauts have ever watched Star Wars on a Shuttle/Soyuz/Mir/Space Station mission. Sure these guys work very full days..but hey it’s not that improbable is it?

And what of the lightsaber? will it just stay in a locker on the shuttle the whole time?
