The third episode of the new digital series Science and Star Wars has been released by Disney and Lucasfilm on the heels of The Last Jedi trailer launch. Science and Star Wars is a digital series that explores how close real-world science has come to our favorite Star Wars technology. This latest episode answers the question: Is being frozen in Carbonite a realistic medical feat? And are Bacta Tanks like the one Luke Skywalker was placed into to accelerate healing somewhere on the horizon?
Although scientists can create artificial skin and accelerate bone healing with tiny bubbles filled with genetic material, modern medicine is limited in the ability to replicate the marvels of the Star Wars universe like Carbonite and Bacta Tanks. Watch as the host attempts to simulate a real-life Bacta tank using a chemical that can absorb water 200-300 times its own mass in water.
Over the course the next seven episodes, the series will continue to explore science fantasy, science fact, and the gray area in between. Fans can catch this and future episodes exclusively on the Star Wars official Facebook page.
