Here's one for the mathematicians:
How fast is the Milennium Falcon, really?
Han Solo said She did the Kesstle Run in less than 12 parsecs.
Lets break this down. First, the Kessel run.
This quote from Wookiepedia:
Ok, so Solo did the Kessel Run in 11.5 parsecs.The Kessel Run was an 18-parsec (Roughly 58 Light Years - Wikipedia) route used by smugglers to move glitterstim spice from Kessel to an area south of the Si'Klaata Cluster without getting caught by the Imperial ships that were guarding the movement of spice from Kessel's mines. Worlds along the Kessel Run included Fwillsving, Randa, Rion, and possibly Zerm.
It took travelers in real space around The Maw (Black hole cluster) leading them to an uninhabitable—but far easier to navigate—area of space called The Pit, which was an asteroid cluster encased in a nebula arm making sensors as well as pilots go virtually blind. Thus there was a high chance that pilots, weary from the long flight through real space, would crash into an asteroid.
Han Solo claimed that his Millennium Falcon "made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs". A parsec is a unit of distance, not time. Solo was not referring directly to his ship's speed when he made this claim. Instead, he was referring to the shorter route he was able to travel by skirting the nearby Maw black hole cluster, thus making the run in under the standard distance, he may have indirectly referred to the speed of his ship here because to be able to go closer to black hole and still be able to get out of its gravitational pull you will need to be able to go faster.
Wikipedia says that a parsec is a unit of distance to the value of 3.26156 light-years.
Therefore Solo, did the Kessel Run in 3.26 light years x 11.5, giving us a distance of 37.5 light years.
Now, Solo also said
Which to me, means at full pelt, the top speed of The Falcon is 1.5 x Light speed.She'll make point five past Light Speed
This gives us a top speed of 1.5 light years per year.
So given that the distance they completed the Kessel Run = 37.5 light years
And the Falcon's top speed = 1.5 Light Years/year
I make that the whle trip would have lasted a total of 25 years.
And thats at constant, full speed!!!!
