Moon of Saturn is Pac-Man in Disguise?

Posted By Ben Goulding, 30 March, 2010 | permalink

Mimas, one of the moons of Saturn, has been caught looking remarkably like that of the video game icon Pac-Man.

The image, taken by the Cassini spaceship which is orbiting the planet, measured temperature differences across the object’s surface and produced a map mimicking the popular character.

Mimas is about 400km (250 miles) across. It has a distinctive scar called Herschel Crater which has led many to draw comparisons with the “Death Star” from the Star Wars movies.
