There’s something beautifully disturbing about Saturn’s moon Hyperion. It looks like the kind of place H.P. Lovecraft would write about. Check out this Astronomy Picture of the Day as snapped by our robot friend Cassini.
I love getting postcards from other planets. We need more robots and fewer astronauts!

Whoa…that is crazy.
“rotates chaotically”…Well, YEAH. I mean, just look at that thing. It’s a wonder it can rotate at all.
Imagine living on a planet like that, you’d alwys be looking over your shoulder, wondering when it would spin out of control and come crashing into your planet. undoubtedly, it would disgorge all of the spooky inhabitants of its caverns in the process!
