Millennium Falcon Hiding in the Baltic Sea

August 2, 2011 at 8:37 am | Posted in Miscellaneous | Leave a comment

In one last gambit to avoid the Imperial patrols, Han dived the Falcon to the bottom of the Baltic Sea…or at least this mysterious object looks like it. Discovered by Swiss treasure hunter Peter Lindberg as he and his team were doing sonar scans of the Sea of Bothnia (located in the northern part of the Baltic Sea), the team was looking for Swedish merchant ships that might contain champagne, wine and cognac. These ships were sunk during World War I by the Germans, but instead of finding a Swedish merchant ship, they discovered something that looks very much like the famous Millennium Falcon at a depth of 100 meters. Unfortunately the team does not have the funding yet to do any further investigations so we’ll have to wait to find out whether it’s a space ship from a galaxy far far away or just an interesting shipwreck. You can read the article on The Telegraph’s website.
