According to Scientist, "Star Wars" Took Place a Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long, Long Time Ago in a Galaxy Far, Far Away

First off, I'm not a "big bang theory" believer and don't think the world is anywhere near as old as traditional scientists claim it to be. However, I did find this article to be fascinating and ridiculous at the same time.

"Science has revealed more about when, exactly, the 'Star Wars' movies take place. Every non-spinoff 'Star Wars' film opens the same iconic text – 'A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…' It’s a phrase that’s nearly synonymous with the franchise and almost immediately gives that sense of history and wonder to it. The time period and setting of 'Star Wars' is a beautiful and economical mystery, but some fans want hard answers.

As reported by Wired, Johnson posits that based on the development of life, culture and approximate age of the planets in the universe, Star Wars takes place about roughly 9 billion years after the big bang that created the universe as it is now known. If true, this leaves at least 4.7 billion years between the stories of 'Star Wars' and the present day world. In other words it is 'a long time ago.'"
