Mimas, seen here beyond Saturn’s rings, is a major sculptor of Saturn’s rings. The 398-kilometer-wide (247-mile-wide) moon not only maintains the Cassini Division (not seen here), a gap wide enough to be visible from Earth through a small telescope, but it is also responsible for two of the thin, bright bands visible in this image near the rings’ center, interior to the dark Encke Gap. Knots in the thin, twisted F ring also are easily visible here.
The image was taken in visible light with the Cassini spacecraft narrow angle camera on Sept. 7, 2004, at a distance of 8.8 million kilometers (5.5 million miles) from Mimas and at a Sun-Mimas-spacecraft, or phase, angle of 84 degrees. The image scale is 53 kilometers (33 miles) per pixel (x)

Aidan Turner (The Hobbit Trilogy, Being Human) has been revealed as the star of BBC One’s new six-part adaption of Poldark.
The picture above shows Turner as lead character Ross Poldark in Debbie Horsfield’s adaptation ofWinston Graham’s acclaimed saga set in 18th-century Cornwall,
The drama follows Poldark as he returns home from war, looking forward to a joyful reunion with his family and his beloved Elizabeth. Instead he discovers his father has died, his home is overrun by livestock and drunken servants, and Elizabeth, believing Ross dead, is engaged to his cousin. Ross must start from scratch, forging a completely new path for his life – one that takes him in exciting, unexpected and hazardous directions.
The series is made by Mammoth Screen and directed by Ed Bazalgette (The Guilty, Endeavour).
I was asked by Helene Vanderhaeghe to create figurines of the four horsemen for a collaboration photoshoot ~ Helene was the most terrific Art Director! She didn’t at all mind that my figures looked more like tailless dinosaurs than horses. ♥
