The Actual Speed Of The Millennium Falcon Will Blow Your Mind
One of the best things about Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the return of everybody’s favorite smuggling vessel, the Millennium Falcon.
We all know it’s the coolest ship in the galaxy far, far away, but you probably have no idea how fast this thing actually goes.
Answers With Joe sets the record straight by comparing the Millennium Falcon to the fastest currently conceivable technology being developed by NASA, the Alcubierre Drive.
According to an article on the website Tor.com, the Millennium Falcon tops out at 25,000 light years per day, or 1042 light years per hour. It’s pretty safe to say that’s the kind of speed only possible in the fictional world.
But hey, it’s a nice goal, huh?
