You know, you guys are proving all the critics right about us. "Us" being SW "Geeks", and I say that in the kindest way possible.
Hay its cause of things liek this how physics and such get proven wrong.
IN YOUR FACE OLD PEOPLE!
I think its funny. oh you cant go faster than this its impossable blah blah blah. They dident even have cars back then and the fastest they could travel is how ever fast the horse went.
Do you really love the lamp Stormie or are you just saying that because it's there?
I think, that Han realized he was talking to an idiot (Luke) and an old guy (Ben) and just thought he could make up something that sounded cool to make his ship look good.
Then again GL probably just thought it sounded cool and Harrison Ford was just like, whatever I'm sitting next to a walking carpet.
That kind-of solves the question as to how long Luke was on Dagobah recieving training from Kermit I mean Yoda.
1/4 of a movie.
but if he was traveling .5 past the speed of light time would move more slowly for solo, year to earth would have felt like a few days to solo so, 25 earth years is more like a few mounths to solo
But then again we havent reached the speed of light and then what happens after teh speed of light?
The Falcon made the Kessel run in under 12 parsecs because it's a model hanging from fishing line in front of a blue screen
By the way do you know the ultimate question of life the universe and everything?
The reply above about distance is the way its been further explained throughout books and through the tech of starwars.
The books about the maw cluster touched on it some.
In short, you can not fly within x of the maw (black holes) or it sucks you in.
The faster you can fly, the closer you can get and still be able to escape its gravity.
The falcon was able to shorten the distance from the maw, because the ship was fast enough to escape its pull. The falcon 'supposedly' has engines that are like 6-7 times creating more positive thrust per weight than most other ships.
Now, if you factor in the expanded universe, the sith sphere and / or jacen and kip are able to sense the paths through the black holes of the maw, and make some course adjustments without leaving hyperspace.
So by all geekdom common sense, jacen would be able to be the fastest through.
if he werent dead
OK. We measure time how? The time it takes to travel a certain distance around the sun and earth own orbit correct? Therefore we measure time with light. Once you reach lightspeed you are traveling the same speed as light obviously. So, If you're traveling faster than light how can you measure time? Ergo time and space is relative. You can travel unknow distances in immeasuable time seeing as you can't possibly measure time without light, let alone read a clock Star wars time can't possibly measured as we measure time. We don't count the different time zones of other star systems in our own calculations even in our own solar system do we use seperate distaces from the sun to measure time. We use our own. If we traveled to mars and stayed the for a year and came home how long would we say that we've be gone? 2 years. What about martian time? How long would that have been. Only about one year. you knowhow long a Martian year is? 687 of our days. you know how long a Martian day is? Only 39.5 minutes loner than ours. Maybe if we used solar measurements. But, Again time is relative. Space is continuel. And we don't account for time zone discrepancies. It's is totally possible that 12 parsecs in the SW universe can be traveled in a matter of hours. Who's to say it's not? Oh and BTW, Bromide isn't as compound of Bromine and anouter element, but a Bromine Ion. Which simply means it has a different number of electrons while still retaining it's elemental structure. I hope you've enjoyed my dissertation lol.

Hehehe Kessel is a place in Holland I am serious.
One can not pass the speed of light. The faster an object moves time slows down, its mass increases, and it requires more energy to accelerate it. The reason something can not surpass the speed of light is because the closer an object reaches the speed of light, it gains in mass and requires more energy. If an object were to pass the speed of light, its mass would become infinite.
sure you can!
you just need a ship that can generate infinite kenetic energy.
My head hurts now
