According to Josep Puig, the Andalusian astronomer Ibn Bajjah proposed that the Milky Way was made up of many stars that almost touched one another and appeared to be a continuous image due to the effect of refraction from sublunary material, citing his observation of the conjunction of Jupiter and Mars on 500 AH (1106/1107 AD) as evidence. [22] Early European astronomers such as Tycho Brahe identified new stars in the night sky (later termed novae ), suggesting that the heavens were not immutable. In 1584 Giordano Bruno suggested that the stars were like the Sun, and may have other planets , possibly even Earth-like, in orbit around them, [23] an idea that had been suggested earlier by the ancient Greek philosophers , Democritus and Epicurus , [24] and by medieval Islamic cosmologists [25] such as Fakhr al-Din al-Razi . [26] By the following century, the idea of the stars being the same as the Sun was reaching a consensus among astronomers. To explain why these stars exerted no net gravitational pull on the Solar System, Isaac Newton suggested that the stars were equally distributed in every direction, an idea prompted by the theologian Richard Bentley .

The most prominent weapon emplacement on the Death Star was its superlaser—a weapon powered by a hypermatter reactor [22] and focused through giant kyber crystals [8] with sufficient firepower to destroy an entire planet. [12] The hypermatter reactor at the center of the station fed energy into the various components of the superlaser, including the primary power amplifier, the superlaser power cell, the firing field amplifier, and the induction hyperphase generators. When firing, the energy was redirected into eight tributary beam shafts located around the perimeter of the superlaser, producing lasers that were converged using focusing coils, [22] forming one large beam powerful enough to destroy a planet. [12] If the firing-chamber arrays were not precisely aligned, the crystals would burn out and overload, sending dangerous levels of waste heat back into the Death Star's main reactor. [10]

The author talks to about his novella “The Ride,” set in Star Wars: The Last Jedi ‘s casino city.

Star Wars was released on May 25, 1977. It was followed by The Empire Strikes Back , released on May 21, 1980, and Return of the Jedi , released on May 25, 1983. The sequels were all self-financed by Lucasfilm . [22]
