Star Wars made a geek out of me.
May 20, 2013
As a kid, my parents were very adamant that I should read and not rot my precious meat computer in front of the TV watching music videos and playing video games. As a gift to help encourage that, my parents gave me paperback copy of the novelization of Star Wars: A New Hope. I've dreamed of piloting a space craft, meeting alien races, exploring the secrets of the space, and traveling the Universe ever since.
In 2016, The Planetary Society’s LightSail program will take the technology a step further.
