Another Infrared Pac-Man Projection Spotted on Saturn's Moon

Recent reports submitted by scientists with NASA's Cassini mission are talking about their latest discoveries of infrared Pac-man projection that they have spotted on Saturn's two moons.

Yes, the reports have detailed about spotting a second feature in the Saturn system that the researchers insist is shaped like the 1980s video game icon "PAC-MAN".

The discoveries have been made on the moon Tethys, the pattern of which is appearing in the form of a thermal data that has been obtained by Cassini's composite infrared spectrometer revealing warmer areas making up the PAC-MAN shape.

"Finding a second PAC-MAN in the Saturn system tells us that the processes creating these `PAC-MEN' are more widespread than previously thought", said Dr. Carly Howett, the lead author of a recently published paper.

The first PAC-MAN thermal shape was discovered by scientists on the Saturnian moon Mimas in early 2010 and at that time, the scientists theorized that such a shape occurs due to the bombardment of the side of the moon by high energy electrons that force it to face forward the orbits around Saturn.

Regarding the recently discovered Pac-Man, scientists are explaining that along with proving the alteration of the surface of an icy satellite by high energy electrons, the findings confirm that the alteration is big enough that it cannot be cancelled by the icy particles in Saturn's "E Ring".
