"Darth Vader demolished the Jedi Order, despite his physical disabilities and assisted in the organization of the First Galactic Empire."
To the dismay of "Star Wars" fans everywhere, physicists have long cried foul about the science of building real-life lightsabers. According to conventional physics, photons don't behave like regular particles of matter. They are massless particles, and can't interact with one another. It's therefore impossible to build anything out of light with a solid structure, such as a lightsaber.
But a breakthrough new discovery from researchers at the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms could change everything, according to phys.org (link provided below). They have discovered how to make individual photons interact and bind together into molecular structures. Not only does this represent a whole new state of matter, but these light molecules can potentially be shaped to form solid structures — in other words, lightsabers!
Her Instagram note reads:
Thank you so much for that brilliant invite to your formal.Unfortunately I'm locked in an intense staring competition with Luke Skywalker, somewhere in the middle of the galaxy, so won't be able to make it! Let me know how it goes!
And just to show you what she's missing out on, here's the video invitation:
I guess he'll just have to carry on "making lots of friends and gaining lots of knowledge" without her.
