The Cassini spacecraft has sent back photos of Mimas, one of Saturn's 31 moons, that reveal for the first time the extent of the devastating impacts that have littered the moon's surface with craters. The largest crater, called Herschel, is about 80 miles across, nearly a third of Mimas' diameter, and makes the moon resemble to the Death Star space station in the movie "Star Wars."
