Mimas FTW

Feast your eyes on this picture of Mimas, one of Saturn’s moons.

Remind you of any arcade games you’ve played recently?

The temperature map taken by NASA’s satellite looks just like the character from the iconic computer game Pac-Man.

The image was taken by the Cassini spaceship, a joint venture between NASA, the European Space Agency and the Italian Space Agency, which is orbiting the planet. Experts have attributed the variations in temperature across the moon’s terrain to differences in the texture of surface materials, some of which may retain heat better.

Is that not awesome? A moon that looks like Pac-Man.

And they say God can’t work miracles.
