Ok every else probably knows this already, but

Chewie has recently handed over Luke Skywalkers lightsabre to NASA, so that it will be taken up on Discovery's next trip into space in november. When it come back down it will be greeted by R2D2 and two stormtroopers.

All this to mark the 30th anniversary of Star Wars.
