    I sense a disturbance in the Force.

    I thought that was an asteroid.

    thelotuseater725: No, it’s one of Saturn’s moons.

    Mimas…link sez the crater’s 130km across. Since it looks about 1/4 the diameter, that’d make the moon 520km, or around 300 miles in diameter. What was the Death Star, 100 miles across? 120?

    Math is fun.

    On top of that, I think they call the crater Darth Crater.

    Even better a Death Star lookalike is Iapetus, Saturn’s third largest moon.

    i love Iapetus! it’s so fucking mysterious! the dark and the white side, the weird form (because it isn’t spheric) and that mountain on the Ecuador…
