NASA spot Han Solo formation on the surface of Mercury

It totally looks like him, if you squint a bit.

WE SORTA SEE it, can you see it?

NASA’s Messenger spacecraft caught this formation on the surface of Mercury in July 2011.

The recently released photo, bares a strange similarity to a particular rebel General of the Star Wars galaxy.

Is there a likeness to Han Solo frozen in carbonite?

NASA seem to think so, entitling the photo with a quote directly from Darth Vader: ‘He Will Not Be Permanently Damaged’.

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. In this image, 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 twelve parsecs.
