Last weekend I finally went to see the new Star Wars movie, I know it’s been out since December I don’t always go to see movies when they’re brand new… Anyways, it was a good movie and I enjoyed it. But when I came back to work on Tuesday and started cleaning one of the gate valves from one of the Worthington pumps all I can think is how, if you turn it a certain way, it looks like a TIE fighter! It’s a very nice copper alloy valve and it’s going to look great when it’s finished. I’m not the only one making this parallel, you can see for yourself:

 

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. It’s member appreciation day at the museum on Saturday, so if you’re in the area you should stop by. Hannah will be giving a talk in the USS Monitor gallery at 1 pm. If you would like more information you should check out the museum’s website here.
