Another day, another bizarre sighting at a reported top secret government installation. Today, we take a look at a Millennium Falcon-like craft inside a climate controlled hanger at Area S4, near the 'third dry lake left of Area 51' - to be more specific, at these coordinates 36°55'35.30"N 116° 0'25.41"W. "I am sure of what I saw. I know what mainstream science is like, I know where physics stands - I know all of that - and this is an extraterrestrial craft, this technology is hundreds and hundreds of years in advance of us, and that's the end of that story," said Bob Lazar, a government scientist and engineer who allegedly worked to reverse-engineer alien technology at S4.

Fashion designer Mikaela Holmes spent a good part of 2015 waiting in anticipation for Star Wars: Force Awakens, so instead of wasting her time reading things online, she channeled her energy into a creative project. This light-up Millennium Falcon purse was the result. "To create the illuminated rear hyperdrive module of the Falcon, I added a strip of LEDs with a simple on/off mechanism attached to the snap closure of the bag. I tried to turn as many components of the ship as I could into functional design elements while still keeping the overall form relatively straightforward. It was a really fun project, challenging in all the right ways," said Holmes. Click here to view the first image in this week's things that look like other things gallery.
