In a galaxy not so far, far away, lives the Colorado man created the Death Star you know from the Star Wars movies.

Kind of a cool story; as The Denver Channel reports, even Colin Cantwell's partner of 19 years didn't know he played a role in creating the Death Star, Millennium Falcon and more. According to a recent feature on 9NEWS' Next With Kyle Clark, he revealed that the big 'trench' in the Death Star was inspired by a mistake. Because of which he couldn't get two pieces of plastic in his design to fit together. George Lucas was OK with that (watch the video here).

You can read his full story via The Denver Channel and NEXT. And, then go see Solo: A Star Wars Story.
