The theme selected for week thirty of Operation Graphite will be: Lightsaber.

Before you complete your training, you must design and construct your own Lightsaber. Only then can you become a Jedi Knight. Probably one of the coolest weapons in Science Fiction, it is also one of the most improbable. A beam of light that goes out three feet then stops, and can not past though a similar beam seems impossible. More plausible would be a electromagnetic field in the shape of the blade that is filled with charged plasma. Yet this would need a extraordinary power source, likely generating so much heat your hand would melt off if you tried to hold it. It’s maybe best not to over think it, after all, who knows what kind of technologies are available to a type 3 Civilization. That high up the Kardashev scale and maybe anything is possible.

This week we will design a lightsaber, and it may be one used by a Jedi Knight, or a Sith Lord. While the focus will be on the Lightsaber it self, you may also show who wielding the blade if you choose. Please submit a drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media of your Lightsaber

All art work is due on Thursday 8.30.12. Submissions will be published the following Friday 8.31.12.

May the Force be with you.
