Summary (Jul 27, 2004): Cassini's tour of Saturn's remarkable system of 31 moons has taken the probe past one of the ringed planet's natural wonders: Mimas. The 250 mile wide satellite suffered a catastrophic impact that opened a wound one third of its diameter and nearly split the moon in half. Today, Mimas bears a striking resemblance to the Star Wars' Death Star, which wrecked havoc on planets using its laser-focusing dish. In place of the laser dish, Mimas carries a crater peak the size of Mount Everest.

I'm afraid that the shields will be quite operational when your friends arrive.

Don't be too proud of this geologic terra you've uncovered... the ability to discover a planet is in-sign-if-i-can't compared to the power of the fours.
