Was the Millennium Falcon found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea?

On June 19, maritime treasure hunters -- who were looking for priceless submerged hooch in shipwrecks -- discovered a 60-meter-diameter circle 87 meters under the Baltic Sea. Are these the remains of an alien vessel or Cthulhu's personal pan pizza?

Next to the circle is a 300 meter long slide track -- as if the circle has traveled across the seabed before it has settled [...] They rule out theories that there is a depth bomb or mine from the First World War -- or a symmetrical [algal] bloom [...] The most likely scenario is still that there is a natural ground formation.

io9 tipster Dr Nilsson suggests that we're looking at the remains of the Millennium Falcon, which isn't entirely implausible as Chewie and Han have visited Earth (albeit in another dimension). As for a more serious guess, it's the lost Limecat of Atlantis. Also, why didn't my high school guidance counselor inform me that "Booze-Searching Scandinavian Treasure Hunter" was among the world's viable career options?

Eroded volcanic tube — or something more likely than space-aliens?

No, that’s silly.

It’s where they buried the birth certificate.

See, the truth is out there. Or rather under there.

What about that giant laughing face in the pic to the SW of it?

Probably not aliens — Han Solo was from a galaxy far, far away, and that was long, long ago.

Sadly, the UN Counsel against torture is still in session about Lucas’ tortured “explanation” of why “distance” is the same as “speed” instead of admitting he had no idea what a parsec was and screwed up. If they have any concept of “justice” they will rule against Lucas.

At least he won’t have to answer for how Leia can remember her mother as being “sad,” since Leia’s mom Padme died giving birth to Leia...

Just remember: Han shot first (and good for him for doing so!)

Haha... good point. Is this thing close to Peenemünde though?

To be fair, I heard that apparently Leia was talking about her adoptive mother Breha Organa sadness because she knew what going on from her husband Bail Organa, I read it in one of those Timothy Zahn Star Wars books

The Falcon was claimed on a technicality in the bet...but alas the “ship may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts.”

Kind of looks like the PBS Logo to me.

I think a parsec is 3.26 light years. If you want to talk about torture, one need not go further than Jar Jar Binks.

I’m turning you in to the SPCA for that comment. Space Basset’s do not deserve that abuse! ;)
