Scientists discover galaxy far, far away

Funny story written by Phil Clarke

Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) which unveiled the deepest look into the universe yet, last week, have made another breakthrough.

Using the hubble ultra deep field, they have discovered what is almost certainly the galaxy where the events of star Wars happened, long ago.

The galaxy which scientists describe as being far, far away, was discovered after Professor G Ottomahn saw the UDF image last week.

"When I saw the galaxy, I immediately recognised it, but could not say where from. The next morning i awoke to a revelation. It was much like the galaxy seen at the end of The Empire Strikes Back."

Professor Ottomahn's suspicions were heightened when later on that day he checked the 2 galaxies and they seemed too similar to be a coincidence.

"I put on the VHS and was looking at the hubble image. They were one and the same. its just amazing"

Scientists across the world began to hear rumors that the famed galaxy had been found and pointed their eyes skyward. Dr. Ken Benobi at the Jodrell Bank radio telescope said " I wouldnt, and couldnt believe it, but when I pointed the infra red spectrometer at the galaxy it was there plain and simple. The undeniable signature of massive amounts Dark matter"

Dark matter has long been thorised about, but scientists now believe that this material may be what some have referred to as "The Force"

"Its now clear, that the force is with us and that the events of Star Wars, far from Fiction, happened in our universe"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
