Mimas Video Show

Yes it has been a while since my last post.   Here is a video I made from the final new Mimas topography map, which I will talk about in a later posting.  The best portion of this new map is centered on the Herschel basin and this video circles the 140-kilometer-wide 12.5 kilometer deep bowl-shaped impact basin.  The conical central peak rises 5 kilometers above the floor.  The video also flies over part of a wide chasm just beyond the crater rim, the origin of which remains a total mystery!  Actually, it is likely either due to global spin changes or to impact induced fracturing.  There is more on this feature in my previous post!
