We have a special episode of Star Warsologies! This episode is our “Science of Star Wars” panel at San Diego Comic-Con: Special Edition, from November 27, 2021.
Our “Science of Star Wars” panel at Comic-Con: Special Edition 2021 had several awesome guests! Fon Davis (creative director, Fonco Studios) shared behind-the-scenes knowledge from working on over 40 feature films, including the Star Wars prequels. Scientists included Lisa M. Will, PhD (astrophysics professor, San Diego City College), Frank Santana (herpetologist, San Diego Natural History Museum), Amit K. Patel, PhD (ophthalmologist, University of California San Diego), and Melissa Miller (science writer, Star Wars Insider magazine, Nerdist). The panel was moderated by James Floyd (freelance writer, Star Wars Insider and podcast host, Star Warsologies) and sponsored by the Fleet Science Center.
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!
