Science Of Star Wars

Image 1 / 10


Star Wars movies have done more than entertain – they are now changing the way we live.  Three decades ago, the futuristic inventions presented in Star Wars belonged to another time and place, in a galaxy far, far away. Yet society is catching up fast, and a generation of inventors have brought us to the precipice of a new wave of life-changing technology. Each hour of this three-part series, hosted by legendary ‘droids’ C3PO and R2D2, features personal stories and interviews with people inspired and helped by Star Wars technology and philosophies. What are these innovations which are changing the way we drive to the office, buy groceries, make war or save lives? From artificial intelligence to cutting-edge transportation, to military technology, 'Science of Star Wars' reveals the impact of one of cinema’s greatest and most successful sci-fi classics on the real world, as we know it today.
