Chewbaccalaureate: Last week’s best #StarWars and #SWEU tweets

This week I went pun. I can only ask for forgiveness. Or, you could just head beneath the cut for Star Wars science nitpicking, iPhone 5 jokes, a space shuttle, everyone’s favorite Jaina Solo moments and the usual amount of #StarWars and #SWEU.
