- Scientifically plausible lightsaber 4 answers
Every time I think about the construction of a lightsaber, I face all the reasons that a construction of one would be impossible (plasma, laser, lack of contact of light, etc.). So I started thinking, even going against knowledge based canon, that if a lightsaber was built as a micro-shield generator that emitted a thin length-specific shield, most of the problems related to no contact of light against light (or plasma), energy consumption (not very small but much smaller) and most of all parry and energy bolts deflection would be solved! Anyone with more physics knowledge think this is possible, or am I wrong?
