The only drawback is that you won't be able to see a thing outside of your starfighter.
In anticipation of Star Wars Day on 4 May, three fourth-year Physics
students at the University have proven that shields, such as those seen
protecting spaceships in the Star Wars film series, would not only be
scientifically feasible, they have also shown that the science behind
the principle is already used here on Earth.
They have published their findings in the Journal of Special Physics
Topics, a peer-reviewed student journal run by the University's
Department of Physics and Astronomy.
