The latest episode of Star Warsologies is one of our panels from Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022!
Presenting “The Science of Attack of the Clones”
We recorded our fan panel “The Science of Attack of the Clones” at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim on June 28, 2022. Moderated by host James Floyd, we brought out a group of experts to talk about where science and technology collide with the second prequel movie.
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.
In Star Warsologies, hosts James Floyd and Melissa Miller combine their love of Star Wars with their keen interest in all things academic by asking experts about how their field is represented in a galaxy far, far away. It’s a monthly podcast about science and Star Wars!
