Over at Wired, Rhett Allain demonstrates the power of math in the service of geekery. Analyzing the trailer, Allain reveals the following:

  • These TIE fighters seem to be going about the same speed and around 67 m/s.
  • The flight formation appears to be flying from 90 to 650 meters above the ground.
  • If those other objects are flying with the same speed as the TIE fighters, they would be between 19-20 meters long.

You can geek out more math magic and Tie Fighter engineering nerdery over at the Wired article here.

Meanwhile, we salute you, Rhett. May the F=ma be with you always.
