On the one hand, this question kind of answers itself. They just are! And yet, the Star Destroyer appears to be flying, which adds a level of complication and danger to the process. On today's episode, I'm wrapping up my conversation with Georgetown University physics professor Patrick Johnson (author of The Physics of Star Wars) by exploring that scene, which also leads us to discussing Leia's "Mary Poppins" scene from The Last Jedi, the electrocution scene from Jurassic Park, and how the human brain acts as a limiter on what our bodies can do in real life. Punch it!
