    Cassini Finds Features On Mimas And Tethys Resembling Pac-Man



    A Pair of 'Pac-Men'

    Scientists with NASA's Cassini mission have spotted two features shaped like the 1980s video game icon "Pac-Man" on moons of Saturn. One was observed on the moon Mimas in 2010 and the latest was observed on the moon Tethys. The pattern appears in thermal data obtained by Cassini's composite infrared spectrometer, with warmer areas making up the Pac-Man shape.

    So now I'm waiting for the Lovecraftian twist of gigantic ghosts drifting through the galaxy and eating up solar systems.

    The Mayans had the date right, they just couldn't have known that it would be Clyde that ended it all.
