Construction is well underway on Disney’s much anticipated Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme parks planned for both Disney World in Florida and Disneyland, California.

A new drone video released by Disney Parks shows that many of the California park’s landscape and architectural elements – including mountains spires, towers and domes – are already in place. Inspired by the real-world land- and cityscapes of Istanbul and Morocco, the park will evoke the Outer Rim planet of Batuu, a remote trade outpost located along old sub-lightspeed trade routes.

Attractions will include a simulation that allows you to pilot a mission on the Millenium Falcon, an immersive adventure into a battle between the First Order and the Resistance, and a version of the famous Cantina found in the city of Mos Eisley.

The resulting two-seater electric underwater plane—the DeepFlight Super Falcon—promises to move through the seas in “style, safety, and comfort,” providing unique experiences in a craft that is “[d]esigned to do barrel rolls with dolphins and spy-hop with whales.”

A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station on Sunday, sending the world’s first all-electric satellites on their way into orbit. The communications satellites, which were built by Boeing, are the first to use all-electric engines to reach and maintain orbit, and without the need to carry heavy loads of fuel, they are significantly lighter than conventional chemical-propulsion satellites.

SpaceX, Elon Musk’s space flight company, successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket on April 14, but their plan to land the rocket on a floating barge failed when the rocket tipped over on landing. The rocket was carrying an unmanned cargo spacecraft called the Dragon. The Dragon is loaded with 4,300 pounds of supplies and is expected to deliver them to the International Space Station on April 16. Meanwhile, once the rocket and the payload separated, the goal was to land the rocket back on Earth on a floating barge. They came oh so close… until the rocket swayed and fell over.
