'Today is Star Wars Day!  (May the 4th...think about it) so a few wee facts from a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away are in order.  The chirpy little astromech droid R2-D2 stands at 0.96m tall – laid end to end we have now travelled the length of 10,683,697 R2-D2s!  Han Solo's pride and joy (and the crowning glory of many a Star Wars toy collection), 586_r2d2the Millennium Falcon, measures 34.75m from bow to stern and has a top speed of 1,050 km/h - we've now travelled the length of 295,151 Millennium Falcons over the 11 weeks but it would only have taken Han and Chewbacca just a little over 9 hours to cover the same distance.  And finally, the Death Star Mark II was over 900km in circumference – if we were to take a tour around her decks we would have travelled around her 11 times by now!
