What the hell is that???

Look at this! SUCH a weird surface. Goes to show you can ALWAYS expect the unexpected when observing new things in space. This little sponge-like thing is a moon of Saturn, called Hyperion. More power to NASA!

An interesting bit of trivia: Hyperion is probably the only moon in the solar system with a chaotic rotation, which means that its extremely difficult to predict when and from which direction the sun will rise next!
