Saturn’s moon Mimas - level 2

24-10-2014 15:00

Scientists have some new information about Saturn’s icy moon Mimas. The moon is 400 miles in diameter. The experts studied it and came to the conclusion that something “isn’t right”.

There are actually two possibilities for this. Either the moon’s core is shaped like a rugby ball, or it contains a liquid water ocean.

Difficult words: diameter (line from side to side of the circle), conclusion (result), core (the part which is in the middle).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
