This question already has an answer here:
The quote from this post confused me:
REY: (surprised) This is the Millenium Falcon! This is the ship that did the Kessel Run in 14 parsecs!
So I did a little bit of research and figured out the Kessel Run is indeed (as I assumed) a route, so something to be measured in lengths.
So since parsec is (in our universe afaik) a unit to measure lengths, I don't understand how this can make sense. One can't (i.e.) travel the distance of 100km in less then 80km (at least not without including relativity/time travel, which isn't that much discussed in Star Wars).
But multiple characters seem to claim/know that the Millennium Falcon made it in X parsecs.
Is there anything about the characters that implies this is done in universe to express i.e. Han's / Rey's missing1 knowledge of space travel?
Or did someone out of universe just fail, and they just remained true with it?
Or is it maybe just me who misses some knowledge, and a phrase like
This is the ship that did the well known route in amazing figure parsecs!
would be in both universes (Star Wars/ours) a meaningful expression? (If so I would be thankful of helping me improve my knowledge.)
To make clear this is not an duplicate, I'm referring especially to the point of view from The Force Awakens, while the related post mentioned is solved by a sourced correction of the wording in the movies. In The Force Awakens this wording is used again by Han and Rey (as far my sources are correct, I haven't seen the movie myself yet). So it is different from the related post.
1I know this probably isn't aimed for, but anyway it’s the only in universe result I can think of, one might expect to achieve.
