    I light saber is exactly what's in its name. It's a beam of light that the Jedi harness as a saber weapon.

    What I understand of star wars lore, lightsabers only use power when cutting. Otherwise, just a flashlight.

    So basically during the badass stare down in the rain between Anakin and Ventress near the end of the first Tartakovski Clone Wars short film, they would both be constantly pummeled by steam if not bursting into flames.

    I've always wondered what would happen if you just held the blade straight down and dropped it. Would it just fall down and down cutting a thin hole all the way down to the core

    Well all this is correct but lightsabers aren't plasma, they're a special alian "Kyber" crystal, therefore has unknown heat conducting properties.

    If we consider the Lightsaber as being something else than what it directly appears to be, what else could it be? On the "late" Expanded Universe there was some sources that stipulated that the Lightsaber is created from a crystal core, and such core was made of some Unobtanium from a planet the Jedi Council had access to. What properties, then, such material could have to create a "blade" with the aspects that we see? We know for sure it is strong, but not necessarily hot. It interacts with solids, but not with gases, and we do not have much info on its interactions with liquids. We know the "blade" is a light emitter, but not for sure that it is light itself, nor do we have any certainty that the light comes from heat. We do know that it faces almost no resistance when cutting, but it DOES offer SOME resistance. Also, we do know that another blades stops it as if they're both solid, they deflect blasters as a solid, and they are stopped by some materials as if they were solid. In fact, this is a natural property of Mandalorian metal. So, maybe the better question remaining isn't what a lightsaber would do if it was made of light, or made of plasma. But instead, what it should have to be if it did what it does in the movies, and what else could we expect of whatever it is.

    4:51... it need not necessarily "radiate" all that energy, or rather not all at the same time... variable and twisted magnetic constriction anyone? in reverse of what they did with "nuclear bell" prototypes they've never got around to testing on Vulcan or newly restarted VASIMR..? A semi-permeable, static charge -like barrier effected and regulated by atmospheric pressure(reactive only to very specific conditions), instead of an exhaust system, or a directed channel, a bullet-like intermittent particle "stream" guided(thinking of a truly nuclear nuclear "bullet" here, a charged projectile) or and an impulse-based gun(but perhaps directed and narrowed out in some less physically coherent way, let's say a wave form(a maser or a low charge proton beam, or high charge infra-red instead of a radar) calibrated(of course, granted that would require a constant recalibration and therefore much computing power...but that's another matter) for locale area specifically?), which, admittedly would also make sense, but perhaps won't be as efficient with its energy concerns...

    ...to be fair, I was always among those that NEVER considered such* (plasma) weapons(or most weaponized** laser-based technology either) to be anything even remotely elegant(give me a phaser or a disruptor any day of the week:)), just problematic(and it's not like we're all like Grievous and can afford getting new spare parts every other episode or scene) ...just doesn't work, it may look stylish with less bloody special effects, but to begin with, just so so so many ways things can go wrong for you rather than your opponent...

    This is all wrong. It’s made from a god damn kyber crystal. Think more focused energy and less nuclear submarine. It’s like a moded laser pointer that kills you. Your analytics are no match to a light saber, son.

    He neglects to explain why lightsabers wouldn't ignite the Jedi nor Sith who wield them or the fleshy beings they wield them against...THE FORCE! The force keeps the heat from the plasma in check and creates a barrier which is focused to whatever point of someone or something the plasma touches preventing such explosive mishaps from occurring...or he's absolutely right in which case my bad 🤷🏾‍♂️.

    Jedi using the light saber, perhaps they are using the Force to contain the power of the light saber so it doesn’t light themselves or everything else on fire. Or it’s just all magic so whatever.

    Lightsabers actually had a power setting that would adjust the heat of the blade. If put on the lowest setting it would merely cause minor burns, but on the max setting, it could cut through durasteel like butter. A Jedi would likely reduce the power setting as to just pierce bone when dueling as to not waste energy, and save power cell energy to further put off the two-day charging process of a lightsaber, as well as to not explode their opponents.

    I propose a secondary advanced tech needed for lightsabers. That being a field that extends around the blade and contains the heat/radiation within a couple of millimeters of the blade. This might explain how lightsabers could actually be handled. It could also not work with materials directly in contact with the blade over an extended period of time to explain getting through the blastdoor. Dunno what happened to Han Solo though.

    Or what if a light saber isnt a melting blade. What if the all blade is some kind of energy that repels matter. To be abable of cutting almost instantly it would repel matter on contact very fast, there causing friction between the atoms and making them hot. That could explain why they dont burn every one around
