They find the “Death Star” hidden near Saturn

I’d love to say “The Empire comes to settle accounts with George Lucas” but it is not. The Cassini spacecraft took a picture of one of the smaller moons of Saturn as it passed near this planet. The moon in question has a strong resemblance to the that we all know.

In the photographs taken by the probe reaches to observe a body of 396 miles wide that has a huge crater in one side, crater that closely resembles the super laser that uses the space station to destroy planets.

As a data geek, the first Death Star had a diameter of 161km while the second, theoretically, had a diameter of 900km.
