Darth Vader’s Death Star Currently Orbiting Saturn

Frightening isn’t it? This shot of Minas, one of Saturn’s many moons, was recently taken by the Cassini space probe as it was flying by the planet.

The amazing picture — which was beamed back to Earth from outer space — bares a striking resemblance to Vader’s fearsome planet-shaped headquarters in the Star Wars trilogy.

But in fact the black and white image is a spectacular snap of one of Saturn’s moons, Mimas.

The international Cassini space probe took the photo — detailing the massive 88-MILE wide crater on the moon’s surface.

  1. Very interesting.

    If you click my website link, you”l see the back side of our moon, in which it too has a rather large crate dent in the center.
    Just imagine what kind of strange religions might have been created with a moon having a dilated pupil.

  3. Maybe old, but not older than Star Wars.

    Yes, that’s right – Star Wars was released before this moon was ever known to exist.

    THAT’S what makes it geeky.
