The galaxy is a place in a long, long time ago that's far, far away and though there's no epic John Williams music blasting through our brains when we're staring up above it, there's definitely plenty to learn about. And if you're not interested in the stars, then maybe you can use these apps as ideas to spark up conversations at future cocktail parties.
