Ep. 117 - Star Wars Celebration: The Science of Attack of the Clones Panel

This week we look back at Jim’s appearance on the Science of Attack of the Clones panel at Star Wars Celebration this past May hosted by StarWarsologies hosts Melissa Miller and James Floyd.

Here is the official panel description:

From clonetroopers to planetary rings to Anakin’s moral struggles, Attack of the Clones is full of connections to real world science. How might seismic charges work? Can you really accelerate clone growth? What would an ocean planet like Kamino be like? How healthy is Anakin and Padmé’s relationship? Our all-star lineup of experts include Fon Davis (prequel model maker, Fonco), Dr. Drea Letamendi (psychologist, Lattes with Leia podcast), Dr. Jim Lehane (geologist, Talkin’ Tauntauns podcast), Dr. Lisa Will (astrophysicist), and J. Dianne Dotson (sci-fi author, science writer, and biologist). Join host James Floyd (Star Wars Insider regular contributor, Star Warsologies podcast) in celebrating the 20th anniversary of Episode II with a look into its science and technology.
