That's No Space Station

Mimas via Dan Sicko

Soon after orbital insertion, Cassini returned its best look yet at the heavily cratered moon Mimas (398 kilometers, 247 miles across). The enormous crater at the top of this image, named Herschel, is about 130 kilometers (80 miles) wide and 10 kilometers (6 miles) deep. (link)

The Magic Word:
Which planet is closest to the sun? (hint -- it's Mercury...)




Kids have *_____never* taken guidance from their parents. If you could
travel back in time and observe the original primate family in the
original tree, you would see the primate parents yelling at the primate
teenager for sitting around and sulking all day instead of hunting for
grubs and berries like dad primate. Then you’d see the primate
teenager stomp up to his branch and slam the leaves.
