Moon of Saturn: Mimas

Mimas is a moon of the planet Saturn. Mimas is responsible for clearing material from the Cassini Division, the gap between Saturn's two widest rings. It is the smallest moon that is round in shape because of its own gravity. Mimas is heavily cratered and has a giant impact crater named Herschel.
