Han Solo Frozen in Carbonite Found on Mercury

by Conner Flynn

Forget the face on Mars and it’s mysterious pyramid structures. The universe is even stranger than that. Case in point, Han Solo, frozen in carbonite has been spotted on the planet Mercury. NASA’s Messenger probe found a raised shape on the surface of the planet that looks just like our smuggler friend after Boba Fett caught him and put him on ice.

Here is the NASA press release on the discovery:

A portion of the terrain surrounding the northern margin of the Caloris basin hosts an elevated block in the shape of a certain carbonite-encased smuggler who can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs.

If there are two things you should remember, it’s not to cross a Hutt, and that Mercury’s surface can throw up all kinds of surprises. This block may be part of the original surface that pre-dates the formation of Caloris, which was shaped by material ejected during the basin-forming event.

Looks like NASA is finally embracing its inner nerd-dork. Good job, NASA. Now get back to the Moon already. It’s right next door for God’s sake.
