This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For

The Obama Administration finally took some time away from less important matters and responded to the people’s call for the creation of a Death Star:

The official White House response to a petition to secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016:

By Paul Shawcross

The Administration shares your desire for job creation and a strong national defense, but a Death Star isn’t on the horizon. Here are a few reasons:

  • The construction of the Death Star has been estimated to cost more than $850,000,000,000,000,000. We’re working hard to reduce the deficit, not expand it.
  • The Administration does not support blowing up planets.
  • Why would we spend countless taxpayer dollars on a Death Star with a fundamental flaw that can be exploited by a one-man starship?

However, look carefully (here’s how) and you’ll notice something already floating in the sky—that’s no Moon, it’s a Space Station! Yes, we already have a giant, football field-sized International Space Station in orbit around the Earth that’s helping us learn how humans can live and thrive in space for long durations. The Space Station has six astronauts—American, Russian, and Canadian—living in it right now, conducting research, learning how to live and work in space over long periods of time, routinely welcoming visiting spacecraft and repairing onboard garbage mashers, etc. We’ve also got two robot science labs—one wielding a laser—roving around Mars, looking at whether life ever existed on the Red Planet.

Keep in mind, space is no longer just government-only. Private American companies, through NASA’s Commercial Crew and Cargo Program Office (C3PO), are ferrying cargo—and soon, crew—to space for NASA, and are pursuing human missions to the Moon this decade.

Even though the United States doesn’t have anything that can do the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs, we’ve got two spacecraft leaving the Solar System and we’re building a probe that will fly to the exterior layers of the Sun. We are discovering hundreds of new planets in other star systems and building a much more powerful successor to the Hubble Space Telescope that will see back to the early days of the universe.

We don’t have a Death Star, but we do have floating robot assistants on the Space Station, a President who knows his way around a light saber and advanced (marshmallow) cannon, and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, which is supporting research on building Luke’s arm, floating droids, and quadruped walkers.

We are living in the future! Enjoy it. Or better yet, help build it by pursuing a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field. The President has held the first-ever White House science fairs and Astronomy Night on the South Lawn because he knows these domains are critical to our country’s future, and to ensuring the United States continues leading the world in doing big things.

If you do pursue a career in a science, technology, engineering or math-related field, the Force will be with us! Remember, the Death Star’s power to destroy a planet, or even a whole star system, is insignificant next to the power of the Force.

Paul Shawcross is Chief of the Science and Space Branch at the White House Office of Management and Budget

Since this is unquestionably the best response to any petition we can ever hope to receive, can we all agree to stop using that online petition website now?

I’m just going to put this here so I’m on record because I refuse to go along with all of the negativity that immediately hit the internet when rumors started flying a few minutes ago about a new Star Wars film.
If there is one, I’ll be in line to see it on opening night. I love the story and I love the universe in which it takes place and, even though I don’t love the choices that George Lucas has made, I’m still an enormous fan and I’m sure I always will be.
So, everyone out there can fill their Twitter and Facebook feeds with snark and a self-satisfied ironic detachment about Star Wars and its myriad problems … but if you’re ten years older than me or five years younger than me, I know I’ll see you in line for Episode VII.

‘Star Wars’ 80’s High School Redesign Concepts | Denis Medri

Artist Denis Medri has been pumping out a steady stream of redesigns of classic comic characters, and given them the Steampunk treatment, Western treatment and even Rockabilly treatment. However recent pieces that turn Star Wars into an 80’s High School movie might just be his most imaginative creations yet. He’s able to take non-human characters and make them human, while not losing the true visual elements about what makes them so unique. Preppy Lando might just be one of the most perfect things the internet has ever thought forth. Brilliant stuff going on here.

So…Luke is Marty McFly…interesting.

Creepy Mark Hamill is very, very creepy.
Honestly, I understand that Hamill is an actor and that, as an actor, he wants to work and, if possible, to challenge himself. But my nine-year-old self really, really wishes that George Lucas had just paid Hamill a modest annual stipend to stay home most days and to dress up like Luke Skywalker at a handful of annual events.
