The MESSENGER spacecraft has boldly gone where no spacecraft has gone before (Mercury to be precise) and has uncovered a secret of galactic sized proportions. While orbiting Mercury, MESSENGER took this rather unusual image, which offers proof that getting on the wrong side of Jabba the Hutt can be very bad for your long-term life prospects.
Check out image below and see if you can spot a certain smuggler who can do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs:
Sadly this is not actually an image of Han Solo frozen in carbonate, but is in fact "part of the original surface that pre-dates the formation of Caloris, which was shaped by material ejected during the basin-forming event." Glad that's been cleared up.
I guess there's no need to panic then and we'll be seeing Han in all his unfrozen glory when Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens arrives in 2015.
