We all know that Han Solo claims to have "made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs" in the Millenium Falcon with his Wookie co-pilot. Remember, this is a distance, not a measure of time. So we know that Solo had to know some shortcut through the star systems to support his claim!
Anyway, click below to see the Hubble image.
