    It's a "priceless piece" of movie memorabilia and they're launching it into space?

    "But every night, when it gets dark
    and the stars come out,
    I'll look up on her behalf.
    I'll look up in the sky and think of you."

    Some other news reports I've seen, think it starwars.com, they said it would be returning to Earth and doing some musem stints before returning to Lucasfilm. I was making the same face when I first read it was being jettisoned into space.
