God slacks off, builds sloppy Saturn moon

Looks like The Man Upstairs threw down a bad welding job on this one…

The Cassini spacecraft’s flyby of Saturn’s moon Iapetus has revealed a bizarre geological feature in its images: a bulging ridge at its equator.

Mission scientists have started to release detailed images of the moon’s surface, which is sharply divided into a bright half and a dark half.

The ridge is around 13km (8 miles) high in some places – taller than Mount Everest, the tallest peak on Earth.
