About

  • In a galaxy far, far away, there is a Star Wars universe packed with captivating science, from the biology of alien species to the astrophysics of hyperspace. But what about Chemistry?
  • Does science fiction meet science facts when we consider Chemistry on Hoth or Naboo?
  • Join Alex Baker, a chemist from the University of Warwick, as he explores the freezing of Han Solo, the colours of lightsabers, the reactions that power star ships and much more. Buckle up and prepare to be transported on a planet-hopping journey of chemical exploration that uncovers the real-world science that inspires Star Wars.
