The Cassini spacecraft, in orbit around Saturn, has revealed a new view of the tiny moon Mimas.
Readings taken by probes measuring the temperature differences across the moon’s surface have produced a map which appears to depict 1980s video game icon Pac-Man. Clearly visible is the character’s open mouth and what could be viewed as a pill he is about to eat.
Scientists are unaware why the moon displays such variations in temperature, but it’s thought the diversity of textures in the surface materials are the cause.
