Does Saturn have a DeathStar!?

No, it's not the DeathStar, it's actually Mimas as photographed by the Cassini telescope. The moon was discovered in 1789 by William Herschel and also goes by the title Saturn I. Mimas is the smallest known astronomical body that is thought to be rounded in shape due to self-gravitation.

Cheers to pop-culture and its origins; did the idea for the DeathStar come from this? Or is it just a coincidence?
