Thanks to the space satellite known as Cassini we now have for the first time an image of Saturn’s moon Pan. But brace yourself this moon isn’t what you are going to expect.
A First Look At Saturn’s Strange Moon Pan
No this certainly doesn’t resemble our moon but something else that we are all familiar with ravioli. No, seriously, Pan looks like someone dropped a Ravioli in outer space and its now orbiting Saturn. The form, the edges all of it look like a Ravioli, but this is make no mistake Saturn’s own moon Pan. The images of Pan have been released to the public and can now be seen online.
The satellite Cassini was sent to the elusive planet Saturn to take a closer look at it and to see why of all the planets in our solar system this one has those rings around it. The rings, of course, turned out to be ice and dust that formed around the planet from it’s surface. Once this was determined but Cassini to be true it was time to look for Saturn’s version of the moon, which of course is Pan. Perhaps the images that were gotten wasn’t what was expected but interesting none the less.
“Pan in mind-blowing detail with its unmistakable accretionary equatorial bulge, ” said Carolyn Porco the head of the imagining for the Cassini mission in a tweet she made on Twitter.
So, what is next? Well, perhaps figuring out the origins of Pan itself and it’s origins. It might be interesting to discover exactly how this moon came into existence. As for the Cassini Satellite itself, it was built with one purpose in mind to study Saturn. Eventually, that mission will be over, and the Cassini will be destroyed within the atmosphere of Saturn. But hey, from the looks of things it would have completed it’s mission. After all, thanks to Cassini we could have more questions answered about this celestial being with the beautiful iconic rings.
