Physics of Star Wars

Special event: Physics of Star Wars

More than 40 years ago, on 25 May 1977, Star Wars began its world-wide success story with the first movie being launched at 32 cinemas in the USA.

We would like to show what is science and what is fiction in the iconic Star Wars movies and connect the Star Wars universe with our current R&D. There will also be hands-on activities, Star Wars characters, and opportunities to speak with our researchers.
