An Analysis on the Kessel Run

The folks over at Wired sure do love them some Star Wars! Just the other day I posted about the strategies behind the Battle of Hoth, and now Kyle Hill does an analysis on the Kessel Run

We all know Han Solo said, "It's the ship that the made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs" when talking about the Millennium Falcon, but how factual is this statement? Though it sounds like a unit of time, a parsec is actually a unit of distance and makes the famous line wrong quite frankly. Or does it? Hill says it's either a case of wrong terminology, or Han Solo is in fact a time traveler. Interesting! Click above to see what he thinks, and learn more about parsecs, light speed, and time than you ever wanted to know.
