OK, so who could possibly have a space/science themed festival without a few visitors from out of space? We thought so too, I am sure they have heard about AstroLight through the galactic social media channels by now and we are expecting quite a few Star Wars characters to drop on in. After all, with all their space flight and laser action, they would keen to get the low-down on the latest scientific research happening here in Melbourne. Who knows, they might share their technology on the Lightsabers…
Of course it’s not the first time Scienceworks has been visited by the odd Jedi or Dark Lord of the Sith. Who could forget the 2009 Star Wars exhibit; Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imaginmation, and those Stormtroopers racing against Cathy Freeman. Will there be a rematch???
Come along and meet your favourite character, grab a selfie (#astrolight16) and if you come in costume, you may even get a spot prize for looking awesome!
This group provides ‘good guy’ Star Wars characters like Jedi (including Luke and Anakin Skywalker), Princess Leia, Han Solo, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca, Pilots and many other characters.
This group provides ‘bounty hunter’ Star Wars characters related to Jango Fett and Boba Fett (Mandalorians).
