NASA Probe Found Han Solo on Mercury's Surface

Not at all long ago, in our galaxy just two planets away, NASA's Messenger probe discovered what appears to be a raised human shape in the surface of Mercury—and it bears a striking resemblance to Star Wars' Han Solo.

Colors of the Innermost Planet: This  image of Mercury was produced by using images from the color base map  during MESSENGER's primary mission.  These colors are not what Mercury would look like to the human eye, but rather the colors enhance the chemical, mineralogical, and physical differences between the rocks that make up Mercury's surface.
