The Messenger probe NASA sent to Mercury discovered an interesting artifact on the surface of the planet: Han Solo frozen in carbonite. The image showed up on one of the probes passes over the barren planet. Barren like the planet Tattoine, perhaps? We all know that Jabba the Hutt had Han Solo frozen in carbonite for payback over a smuggling mission gone wrong. It appears that unlike the rosey ending in which Princess Leia, Luke, and Lando saved Han from Jabba’s palace, Han ended up on the surface of Mercury. Maybe Boba Fett had to dump Han before he could get to Tattoine or perhaps he crash landed on the planet’s surface. Either way, I doubt that Han could still be alive inside the carbonite. It was a long time ago, after all and the battery cell in the chamber must have run out by now. Still…just in case…we should launch an immediate mission to recover the artifact. We need Han Solo in our world.
