# The Science of Star Wars

In the past couple of weeks, I had the pleasure of working with the communications office and other faculty at Georgia Tech to produce a series of short articles on the Science of Star Wars. I chose to highlight the findings of NASA’s Kepler Mission and connect them with the planets in the Star Wars Universe. I’ve copied my contribution after the jump.
