"Star Wars" in Navajo: featuring Darth Vader & Princess Leia
It's the first time that any major motion picture has been translated into an American Indian language ... and so ..."A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... The Jedi Knights have been exterminated and the Empire rules the galaxy with an iron fist. A small group of Rebels have dared to fight back by stealing the secret plans to the Empire's mightiest weapon, the Death Star battle station. The Emperor's most trusted servant, Darth Vader, must find the plans, and locate the hidden Rebel base. Princess Leia, a captive Rebel leader, sends out a distress signal that is intercepted by a simple farm boy, Luke Skywalker. Seizing his destiny, Luke takes up the challenge to rescue the princess and help the Rebellion overthrow the Empire, along with such unforgettable allies as the wise Obi-Wan Kenobi, the cocky Han Solo, the loyal Chewbacca, and the droids R2-D2 and C-3P0."

What a monumental achievement for human civilization!

To understand the enormity of the Rosetta mission, look no further than its name. The moniker draws inspiration from the Rosetta Stone, the ancient slab of stone emblazoned with three ancient languages. The stone unlocked the mysteries of ancient Egyptian civilization. And now, a spacecraft bearing its name hurtling toward a comet 300 million miles away wants to do the same — this time, for the universe.
