A Long Time Ago...But How Long Exactly?

posted by Stuart Langston -


While most movie fans know that the movie Star Wars took place "a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away," very few of them knew just how long ago that was … until now.

Patrick Johnson, the author of a book called The Physics of Star Wars, took a look at when the first galaxies were formed, crunched the numbers and calculated that Star Wars took place about 4.7 billion years before modern times.

Which, makes the phrase "a long time ago" seem like a bit of an understatement. (Wired)
