Tiny Mimas, Huge Rings

Mimas (near lower left) appears tiny by comparison, so it might seem that Saturn's rings would be far more massive, but scientists think the rings are no more than a few times as massive as Mimas, or perhaps just a fraction of its mass. Cassini is expected to determine the mass of Saturn's rings to within just a few hundredths of Mimas' mass by tracking radio signals from the from the spacecraft as it flies close to the rings. Mimas is 246 miles (396 kilometers) wide.

2001: A Space Odyssey. Love all the exposed wired/buttons on the suit. This has a bit of glamour about it, but still has elements of that rough functionality.
