Set your Tivos — lightsaber technology will be the focus of the premiere episode of a new series on the Science Channel tomorrow, Dec. 1.
The new show, “Sci-Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible,” debuts tomorrow and aims to explain the cool stuff from science-fiction movies in a way that nerds and non-nerds alike may understand. In the premiere episode, Dr. Michio Kaku, the author of Physics of the Impossible, attempts to build a lightsaber. I hope he has the right kind of focusing crystal, lest everything go awry.
In the episode, Kaku also explains how a portal from Stargate might be created.
By the way, if you want to try your hand at building your own lightsaber, visit Amazon.
