Star Wars Props and Costumes, Up Close and Personal

Truly, the Force is with Seattle when it comes to kick-ass exhibits of science fiction memorabilia. Seattle's Pacific Science Center just opened a new exhibit, "Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination." Lightsabers, Yoda, and the Millennium Falcon are all there.

If you're in Seattle before May 8, you can see some amazing props and toys from the original trilogy, as well as a smattering of stuff from the prequels, right up close. According to the Seattle Times, the exhibit includes "more than 100 original artifacts" from the movies. The exhibit aims to use Star Wars to teach you about science and technology.

Flickr user Adactio took some lovely photos of the exhibit and posted them yesterday. Here are our favorites — check out the rest over at his Flickr stream. [Adactio on Flickr]
