Star Wars Lightsaber Visits Outer Space

A lightsaber used as a prop in RETURN OF THE JEDI is currently traveling through outer space aboard the space shuttle Discovery.

The lightsaber in question was used by Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker in JEDI.

According to USA TODAY, "The lightsaber's intergalactic journey began with an idea from Space Center Houston, the official visitors center for NASA's Johnson Space Center. The visitors center will display it as part of an exhibit on Star Wars' 30th anniversary."

George Lucas attended Discovery's blastoff into space.
