The culprit wasn't Darth Vader or those pesky deflector towers, just the stress from the launch. I can only say two things. Absolutely amazing. And poor Porkins. Check out the original coverage of the 21-foot-long X-Wing rocket here.



@erockO: I imagine since hover-capable propulsion mechanisms have not been invented yet to counteract the poor aerodynamic design of the X-wing fighter.
