Heavenly Body of the Week: Bespin

Bespin is the home of the mining town known as Cloud City. Bespin made its first appearance in a little movie known as The Empire Strikes Back. Bespin is also, or at least was the home of that scoundrel known as Lando Calrissian. Lando was the Baron Administrator when Han Solo, Leia Organna, and Chewbacca showed up to avoid the Imperial forces of Darth Vader. What happened next? Let's just say Lando can be a jackass sometimes, and Han got frozen in carbonite, and hauled off by the bounty hunter known as Boba Fett. Yeah, Lando can be a prick sometimes. I guess he made up for it during the Battle of Endor, but still...kind of an ass.

And while we are on the subject of the Heavenly Body of the Week, I would like to take this time to mention that this just so happens to be the 52nd Heavenly Body of the Week, and according to my math skills, that would be a full year of Heavenly Bodies. So there ya go. Now we move on to Year Two. And why not take a gander at my Heavenly Body of the Week Space Database, found oh so conveniently via the link at the bottom of this very page. And then be back here next week for the start of Year Two in our Heavenly Body of the Week goodness.

Check out the Heavenly Body of the Week Space Database.
That's it gang. See ya 'round the web.


  1. Poor Lando hasn't aged too well either. He ended up on Dancing With The Stars and I don;t think he realized he was even there

  2. Wonder if Lando's still drinking his Colt .45?
