Dreaming of Mimas

10-Oct-05 01:09 pm EDT Leave a comment Go to comments
Ever have a vivid dream that makes no sense? I mean, apart from the obvious Freudian analyses one can make about just any dream one ever has.  I was introduced to one of Saturn’s moons – Mimas – in my childhood and found it really fascinating when the most recent probe pass of it (Cassini) got a couple long-range shots of the famous "Herschel Crater", which most people don’t know by name…but which was the focus of this recent dream I had.
In the dream, I was this astronaut exploring this alien artifact at the centre of the crater. In fact, the object at the centre is a 6km high peak generated by an impact millions of years ago, but in Ross’s dreamland ended up being an obelisk covered in archaic alien symbols.
Not sure how the deram ended, although the subject might make for a great "B" sci-fi flick. 😉
Yeah…back to work here, I think.
