Its your monthly moon round-up.
This is Saturns moon, Iapetus. And it is half covered in black stuff. We're not too sure what this stuff is, but we are guessing its Carbon. Quite how it got there, we dont know - it could be volcanic but we dont inderstand the process.
The close up is from a fly-by by the probe Cassini. Incredible details! :)
Wanna go, now!
