There are more stars in the observable universe than there are grains of sand on earth. However there are more H2O molecules in 3 drops of water than there are stars in the observable universe.

Not sure if this is a "fun" fact, but is a remarkable coincidence: the Beatles' song "All my Loving" was coincidentally played on the hospital's sound system, the moment John Lennon was pronounced dead.

Star Wars fun facts--

 

The name "Anakin" was only heard once in the OT, and not until ROTJ.

 

Leia's last name "Organa" was never heard/mentioned/spoken in the OT.

 

In the ANH shooting script, most non-speaking roles had generic names. "Imperial droid" "bartender" "Alliance general" etc. It was not until the toys began manufacturing, and they decided to make on for literally every character, that names were cooked up for all of them (mostly by Lucas.)

 

(all of these names were established by the ANH radio drama, which pre-EU, was considered canon.

 

90% of the blasters in ANH are based on actual weapons, most of them from WW2. They were disassembled, and put together in odd combinations.

 

Most of the production design was based around 2 tons of airline and military scrap that was bought.

 

Lucasfilm's famous prop/costume/model archive wasn't actually started until ESB. A lot of the props used in ANH had to be returned to where they were rented from, were taken home by people on the production, or simply thrown away.

 

We are now as far away from Revenge of Sith as we were from Return of the Jedi when Phantom Menace came out.
