    A photo of the surface of the planet Mercury has set astronomers giggling with what appears to be Star Wars' hero Han Solo -- frozen in carbonite.

    The picture, released by the Messenger spacecraft division of NASA[IMG], shows a formation in the terrain of the Caloris basin "in the shape of a certain carbonite-encased smuggler who can make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs."

    "If there are two things you should remember, it's not to cross a Hutt, and that Mercury's surface can throw up all kinds of surprises," the NASA website posted.

    Don't get it. I see two legs, and that's it.

    Nerd humor. There is a reason they work for NASA and aren't doing stand-up.
