Visitors to the museum can take a short spin in a replica of the cockpit from the Millennium Falcon, Han Solo’s spaceship, also from “Episode IV.” The multimedia presentation is designed to simulate a “jump to lightspeed” experience that heads to the edge of the universe.
The “Star Wars” exhibit also features the droids C-3PO and R2-D2, the only characters to appear in all six films.
“Star Wars” creator and Lucasfilm head George Lucas (right) attended the gala opening of the exhibit Oct. 22. Also pictured are celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck and the president of the Museum of Science, Ioannis Miaoulis.
