tie-fighters

When looking at Star Wars TIE fighters, you’re talking about one of the fantastic and most distinctive ships in any science fiction universe. These fictional ships serve the same role as individual fighter planes, and are powered by twin ion engines, which is where the acronym TIE comes from. These extremely agile and maneuverable ships are found in all three of the original Star Wars movies as well as the newest release.

The maneuverability and fighting style of these vessels was very intentionally considered by the original filmmakers. The idea was to have a quality rebel fighter that might look somewhat familiar, but the empire would have a very original ship that was its equal in combat. Battles between the rebel force and the Empire were meant to bring back images of World War II dogfights were massive battles could also be broke down to serious one on one battles between talented pilots on both sides of the fight.

These Star Wars TIE fighters certainly held up their side of the bargain in helping to create this image! While there were some instances of off-shoots of the TIE fighter, like the double padded versions that were making bombing runs in the asteroid field to look for the Millennium Falcon. There are multiple other types of TIE fighters also mentioned in the books off of the Star Wars universe, if you accept those as canon material.

In Conclusion
When you have such a vast universe like the Star Wars universe, there are so many different interesting things you can study to get really into the creation. The TIE fighter was one of the most distinct new ships in any science fiction universe and that left an undeniable mark on the science fiction genre as a whole.

Why Magicians Are So Magical

As human beings, we are always curious to make sense of the things happening around us. During magic displays, this natural sense of curiosity is tickled and teased, thereby rendering magicians famous. A professional uses adept performances and movements that make you think that something is occurring, while in the real sense, it is not. In turn, your focus is concentrated on trying to think of alternate scenarios. Most of the professional magician’s reveals are usually unique, unexpected and well-paced so that they can attain the desired effect on the audience. Note that magicians strives at creating surprising and wondrous effects that are hard to recreate.

Magicians pop up in all kinds of weird places. They can be at trade shows, performing tricks, like Traffic Stoppers; they can be in alleys performing street magic, like David Blaine

The secretive nature of magicians makes the practice even more magical. Showing people how the tricks are done spoils the whole fun because magic is only magical if the spectator has no idea of how it’s done. A lot of individuals, including the magicians, therefore, don’t like shows that break the magician’s code. In fact, when an illusionist joins a professional society, they usually take an oath of never revealing the secret of illusion to someone who is not a magician, unless the individual swears to uphold it. A spectator who knows the secret tends to lose interest, and that’s why the magicians wouldn’t want their experience of a trick ruined.

Magic is all about amazement and surprise. The joy of it usually comes at the moment of disclosing the methods since most people have a mentality that certain things are impossible. When a magician reveals something they have done, they leave you to figure out how they were able to trick you. However, most of them won’t publicize the advanced stratagem and hence leaves you to do your research if you are seriously interested. In a nutshell, the conflict between what you see during magic and what your brain perceives enables magic to be entertaining and makes magicians magical in the same breath.
