Luke's Saber Launches Into Orbit

Bespin refugee - October 22, 2007
As Luke's lightsaber from Return of the Jedi travels aboard the space shuttle Discovery, fans will be able to leave messages for the astronauts. During their mission (Oct. 23 - Nov. 6th), the messages will be collected for a cd to be presented to the crew upon their return and debriefing. After the mission, the lightsaber will be part of a new exhibit at Space Center Houston, including small collection of famous Star Wars movie props and a full-size X-wing starfighter, through Jan. 1.
