Remember that image that was floating around awhile back; the one that looked liked a sunken Millennium Falcon?  Well, apparently it’s a mushroom.  A dive team brought back a sample and also reported that it was the weirdest thing they’ve ever encountered on a dive.  Hopefully they weren’t sampling the mushroom.

Random House has posted a new version of the cover for the Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual. Not a huge change, but this one does differ from the early version with a much more finished feel to it. You can see the original cover here as well as more details about the upcoming book.

Random House has updated the description for the upcoming The Millennium Falcon Owner’s Workshop Manual by Ryder Windham.

This Haynes Manual traces the model history of the Corellian Engineering Corporation’s YT series of spaceships and the development of the YT-1300 model line before focusing on the Millennium Falcon, itself a modified YT-1300. Onboard systems, controls, and their operation are described in detail and supported by a host of photographs, line art, floor plans, exploded diagrams, and stunning computer-generated artwork, all newly created by acknowledged Falcon experts Chris Reiff and Chris Trevas. Text is by Ryder Windham, author of more than fifty Star Wars books.

Covering operational history, piloting, propulsion, weapons, engineering systems, sensors, and crew facilities, this is the most thorough technical guide to the Millennium Falcon available.

The hardcover book is scheduled for release on February 7, 2012.

Millennium Falcon Hiding in the Baltic Sea

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.

Okay, maybe it’s not exactly the Millennium Falcon and AT-ATs you were envisioning, but you have to admit this photo from Todd Lappin at Telstar Logistics is a winner.  And yes the cranes actually are called AT-ATs.
