Scientists say a subterranean ocean beneath Mimas' icy surface would explain the Saturn moon's strange, wobbling rotation.

Saturn's moon Mimas may be hiding an ocean under its icy surface

In this view captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft on its closest-ever flyby of Saturn's moon Mimas, large Herschel Crater dominates Mimas, making the moon look like the Death Star in the movie 'Star Wars.

10 Moons Every Person Should Know

Jupiter's moon Europa, imaged from the Galileo spacecraft. Europa's surface is largely water-ice, fueling speculation that a possible liquid water ocean may exist beneath at least some of the surface.

Cassini-Huygens space probe takes amazing snapshot of Saturn and its rings

In the Shadow of Saturn. January 2009 the Cassini spacecraft was orbiting Saturn and drifted in giant planet's shadow for about 12 hours. Far in the distance, at the left, just above the bright main rings, is the almost ignorable pale blue dot of Earth.

Iapetus is the third largest moon of Saturn, with a radius of about 42% that of our moon, and a mass that weighs up to only 2.5%. This is the equatorial ridge that  runs along the center of Cassini Region, the ridge has an average height of 13 km, occasionally going up to 20km, a length of 1,300 km and a width of about 20 km. It was discovered when the Cassini spacecraft imaged Iapetus on December 31, 2004

The image of Saturn's moon Dione was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow-angle camera on Dec. 23, 2012. The view was obtained at a distance of approximately 153,000 miles (246,000 kilometers) from Dione. Image scale is 0.9 miles (1.5 kilometers) per pixel.

The famed wispy terrain on Saturn's moon Dione is front and center in this recent image captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft. The 'wisps' are fresh fractures on the trailing hemisphere of the moon's icy surface.
