Astronomers this week claim something wierd is happening on Saturn’s moon Mimas. There’s something strange going on below the surface of Mimas, a new study suggests.
Mimas’ rotation and its orbit around Saturn make the moon look like it’s rocking and back forth and oscillating similar to the way a pendulum swings
Something else of interest. Saturn’s moon Mimas looks very much like the death star from Star Wars. Star Wars was released in 1977. The first close ups of Mimas were taken from the Pioneer Spacecraft in 1979!
