Does Ravaszhi treat Ikoral like he would a Jedi Master?
Hard to compare, since Ikoral is the only master Ravaszhi ever had.
But in the sense that Ravaszhi near-blindly/ unquestioningly follows Ikoral’s every direction, willingly puts himself in harm’s way to carry out Ikoral’s missives, and generally looks at him like he hung the moon? Very much yes.
Ravaszhi might actually treat Ikoral with more deference/ submissiveness than he would have a Jedi in his padawan years, since at this point he’s already been rejected by the Order and Ikoral has that insecurity to capitalize on.
EDIT: What Ravaszhi more or less does is ~submits to the will of his master~ the way Jedi ordinarily ~submit to the will of the Force~
Like…all that about letting go, letting the Light in, [insert Jedi-ism here]? That’s Ravaszhi. Just replace the Light/ Force with an actual Sith master :)
Is your favorite Star Wars planet a desert world or an ice planet or a jungle moon?
It’s possible that your favorite planet exists right here in our galaxy. Astronomers have found over 3,400 planets around other stars, called “exoplanets.”
Some of these alien worlds could be very similar to arid Tatooine, watery Scarif and even frozen Hoth, according to NASA scientists.
Find out if your planet exists in a galaxy far, far away or all around you. And May the Fourth be with you!
Planets With Two Suns
From Luke Skywalker’s home world Tatooine, you can stand in the orange glow of a double sunset. The same could said for Kepler-16b, a cold gas giant roughly the size of Saturn, that orbits two stars. Kepler-16b was the Kepler telescopes’s first discovery of a planet in a “circumbinary” orbit (that is, circling both stars, as opposed to just one, in a double star system).
The best part is that Tatooine aka Kepler-16b was just the first. It has family. A LOT of family. Half the stars in our galaxy are pairs, rather than single stars like our sun. If every star has at least one planet, that’s billions of worlds with two suns. Billions! Maybe waiting for life to be found on them.
Mars is a cold desert planet in our solar system, and we have plenty of examples of scorching hot planets in our galaxy (like Kepler-10b), which orbits its star in less than a day)! Scientists think that if there are other habitable planets in the galaxy, they’re more likely to be desert planets than ocean worlds. That’s because ocean worlds freeze when they’re too far from their star, or boil off their water if they’re too close, potentially making them unlivable. Perhaps, it’s not so weird that both Luke Skywalker and Rey grew up on planets that look a lot alike.
An icy super-Earth named OGLE-200-BLG-390Lb reminded scientists so much of the frozen Rebel base they nicknamed it “Hoth,” after its frozen temperature of minus 364 degrees Fahrenheit. Another Hoth-like planet was discovered last month; an Earth-mass icy world orbiting its star at the same distance as Earth orbits the sun. But its star is so faint, the surface of OGLE-2016-BLG-1195Lb is probably colder than Pluto.
Both the forest moon of Endor and Takodana, the home of Han Solo’s favorite cantina in “Force Awakens,” are green like our home planet. But astrobiologists think that plant life on other worlds could be red, black, or even rainbow-colored!
In February 2017, the Spitzer Space Telescope discovered seven Earth-sized planets in the same system, orbiting the tiny red star TRAPPIST-1.
The light from a red star, also known as an M dwarf, is dim and mostly in the infrared spectrum (as opposed to the visible spectrum we see with our sun). And that could mean plants with wildly different colors than what we’re used to seeing on Earth. Or, it could mean animals that see in the near-infrared.
What About Moons?
In Star Wars, Endor, the planet with the cute Ewoks, is actually a habitable moon of a gas giant. Now, we’re looking for life on the moons of our own gas giants. Saturn’s moon Enceladus or Jupiter’s moon Europa are ocean worlds that may well support life. Our Cassini spacecraft has explored the Saturn system and its moons. Watch the video and learn more about the missions’s findings.
The next few years will see the launch of a new generation of spacecraft to search for planets around other stars. TESS and the James Webb Telescope are slated to launch in 2018, and WFIRST in the mid-2020s. That’s one step closer to finding life.

You don’t need to visit a galaxy far, far away to find wondrous worlds. Just visit this one … there’s plenty to see.
star wars ideas that are better than the han solo movie will ever be:
Ahsoka Tano movie.
the real politicians of coruscant: in the style of the real housewives, but with the senators. set during the prequels.
rebels and x-wings: in the style of parks and rec/the office, but with the rebellion. starring poe dameron and bb-8 (subtitles for his beeps available)
Ahsoka Tano movie.
a dramatic telenovela about a young force user who discovers they are the child of a jedi master so they join the order so they can find out who that jedi master is and the collective what-the-fuck episodes where they think it’s YODA. it’s not Yoda obviously, and Yoda is actually also revealed to be THE VILLAIN in the middle of the plot, while pushing someone down the stairs for no reason
AHSOKA TANO MOVIE
“Hi, my name is Anakin Skywalker and this is jackass”
“This is Obi-Wan Kenobi: a phenomenal pilot who doesn’t like to fly. A devastating warrior who’d rather not fight. A negotiator without peer who frankly prefers to sit alone in a quiet cave and meditate. Jedi Master. General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Member of the Jedi Council. He is respected throughout the Jedi Order for his insight as well as his warrior skills. He has become the hero of the next generation of Padawans; he is the Jedi their Masters hold up as a model. He is the being that the Council assigns to their most important missions. He is modest, centered and always kind. He is the ultimate Jedi. It is characteristic of Obi-Wan that he is entirely unaware of this.”
