There are so many rich references to Star Wars in this title and post – everyone should watch this. For those of you who pretend not to care about Star Wars – last weekend a number of people build 1/2 scale models of various ships, added rocket engines to them, and launched them. It defies awesomeness. The best quote of the post:
Let’s face it together, Star Wars nerds—as much as it gives us a giant collective nerd-boner to imagine real, flying Star Wars vehicles, buzzing the air traffic controllers at JFK Intl’ airport, these things were designed by Lucas’s film masters, not aerospace engineers
Nerd-boner. That is my new favorite phrase.
