NASA International Space Station: The Force Awakens

Space Station Happy New Year. “May the force be with you.”

Deathstar vs ISSIn several blogs later on in 2016, I’ll compare Star Trek’s imagined future technology with some amazing (Amazing?) research and experiments being done around the world today that are well beyond anything attempted on the International Space Station.

But as a special Happy New Year nod to the newest entry in our science fiction universe, I’ll use the side-by-side photo above plus a very special, musically augmented, NASA film clip of a Space Shuttle flyby of the International Space Station to offer you one final connection between the ISS and Star Wars.  Make sure you watch this with the sound on.

Happy 2016 everyone!
