Finally an answer to the ages-old question of where Pac-Man’s been lately. It seems he’s retired to one of Saturn’s moons. Mimas, as it’s called, shows Pac-Man frozen in full-on chomp mode as he prepares to eat Herschel Crater, which resembles a nice big power pellet.

The image was captured by the Cassini spacecraft as it snapped a thermal heat map of Mimas’ surface. The moon has also been said to resemble the Death Star, which ought to lead to numerous accusations of Pac-Man being in league with the Dark Side. Interesting how the ghosts in Pac-Man sort of resemble Darth Vader’s helmet, no?

We’re through the looking glass here, people.
