No, I meant for thinking along those lines in high school. Seems the vast majority of kids that age are thinking about just about anything BUT cool stuff like that.

I always like science growing up, so that stuff always sounded cool to me.

I have to say the thing that got me the most is the sound. In my mind that would be what a X-wing should sound like in atmosphere. Great link.

Sometimes you gotta play to your strengths and your loves in school period. Besides rockets in 10th grade, two of the other things we had to do was the classic "drop an egg without it breaking" and a project concerning distance flown versus the weight of the object. Naturally my team on the egg did the tried and true parachute, with me being the primary designer of the thing. And on the other I worked by myself and made a three foot long balsa wood bi-plane glider (I rode my bike to school the day I took that in and let me tell you that was a difficult ride). Due to the weight in the nose it just barely came in under the weight limit, but was the best looking design.

On the 'drop the egg' project I took a small cardboard box and used duct tape to suspend the egg in the center of the box. Closed it up, dropped it, and voila! Intact egg.

Fairly excllent editing job. But I did find out that if you pause the video right before the TIE's shot supposedly hits (and infact right before the TIE come on the screen) you can see the X-wing already falling apart. The lower S-foils are already dropping down.
