Carrie Fisher, Space and Hollywood Royalty

This past week, we experienced the loss of a legendary individual who made an indelible impact on pop culture. Actress, writer, producer, and comedian Carrie Fisher passed away on Tuesday from complications from a cardiac arrest at the age of 60. Carrie Fisher is most remembered for her defining role as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise. She played a strong female warrior that could hold her own against Stormtroopers, Jabba the Hutt, Darth Vader, and anyone else who came in her path. In 2015, she reprised her role as Princess Leia, who grew up and ascended to General Organa in "Star Wars: A Force Awakens."
