Hey, in case you haven't heard, the new "Star Wars" movie comes out this weekend. Unless you've been living under a rock, I'm guessing you already knew that.
I was just a kid when I saw the first movie, but I recall that I didn't really want to see it because I wasn't interested in science fiction or space. Yet, just a few minutes into the film I was enthralled. This crazy, new world captured my attention and I was sad when the credits rolled. I had decided that I wanted to marry Luke. Or Han Solo. I wanted a Wookiee for a friend. I definitely wanted to be Leia - she was anything but your typical princess.
I got to relive that childhood enchantment when I introduced the films to my daughter. She also wanted to marry Luke (well, until she found out how old he was in real life). For us, "Star Wars" was fun entertainment. While we really enjoyed the fantasy, space exploration for the both us wasn't anything we wanted to do in real life. I'm happy to write about scientists and my daughter would be happy playing one on the stage, but actual astronomy just isn't our thing.
But for some kids, "Star Wars" sparked a lifelong interest in science and space. Shannon Schmoll was one of those kids.
Like so many, Star Wars captured my imagination as a kid. My dad was a major Star Wars fan and his love certainly helped me develop a slight obsession with the franchise.
