Weaponry: Science rather than Fiction Perri Lua Lee Lacson
Lightsabers The lightsaber has two interesting properties: it has solidity and it has a finite length. There is a scene in "Phantom Menace" where a Jedi Knight plunges his lightsaber into a three- foot-thick blast door and starts cutting through it. This shows that: The amount of energy stored in the lightsaber's little handle is gigantic. The process of melting through three feet of metal would create so much heat that it would be impossible to hold the handle, much less be anywhere near the melting door.
Lightsabers cannot be made out of light, but could be made out of plasma, but it could not deflect a laser beam. Ionized air Balance placement: the hilt or the tip? Shadow of the lightsaber
Conclusion: Lightsabers as portrayed in the movie are probably impossible, and we will never see them in real life.
Blasters When the pulse of the blaster hits something, that something usually explodes (if it is a spaceship) or it dies (if it is a person). The closest thing to a blaster right now is a laser beam. There are lots of lasers available today that can cut things. The other possibility for a blaster is a particle beam.
Blaster Bullets The bolts of energy that come out of a blaster move through the air at a very slow speed -- slow enough for your eyes to see. If scientists ever create real blasters, the beam will either be invisible, or it will move so fast that it will create one long streak.
Conclusion: Maybe a weapon like this could fit in a spaceship, but probably not in a pistol any time soon.
The Droids They can move around just like people, see things and repair complex objects, talk and carry on conversations andsolve problems and even have emotions. Currently, robots have about as much intelligence as a grasshopper, their vision is very limited today and having a conversation is near impossible. They need BRAINPOWER.
Conclusion: Highly Probable and might happen in the future. (30-50 years from now)
How to Aim and Shoot a Handgun Find a suitable target. Wear the proper safety gear to protect your ears and eyes. Lift the pistol, making sure the barrel is pointed downrange and the downrange area is perfectly safe. Insert the magazine (for a semi-automatic) or rounds (for a revolver). Grip the gun firmly.
Stand in the proper firing stance. Align the front sight with the rear sight. Fire numerous rounds making sure to retake aim, because recoil will have offset your alignment. Unload your weapon and re-verify that it is unloaded.
Gun Safety 1. Assume that all firearms are always loaded. (Treat them as such.) 2. Never point the gun at anything you are not willing to destroy. 3. Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire. 4. Be sure of your target and what is on the right, left and back of it.
