Iapetus - THE MOST BAFFLING … BUT ARGUABLY, THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT OBJECT IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM ….

Get a load of Pan, Saturn's ravioli shaped moon.

Maybe, Saturn's gravity is effecting it's moons?

Autumn is the last time of the year Nature gets to display her brilliant artwork, before the icy hands of Winter steal it away.

it kinda looks like some kind of cast object and the center ridge was where the mold came together to pop out the cast object. I imagine (if this is an artificially created object)  that there were early versions of things and they've gotten the process dialed in to get things more spherical since this early one were made...

Or it just turned out that way in it's "natural" formation due to magnetic/energetic conditions?

This place (solar system/universe) is way more mysterious than we can imagine, and the way things got to be the way they are will probably never be truly revealed to us, lowly humans...

I had a strange very vivid dream (I used to read a scifi book every night, huge Asimov, Clarke, Pohl, Nivens, etc. fan, so it was deep in my psyche, and studied astronomy, incessantly, so I knew every planet, diameter, surface gravity, escape velocity,  satellites, etc) that I stole my dad's spaceship, and my friend and I flew to... Iapetus! It was dark, creepy, and boring, we couldn't stay long, because we had to get the ship back before he noticed it missing. I wasn't particularly enthralled by Iapetus at that time, don't know why I dreamed that, but I've always figured that I would find something out about it later, and here it is... and, it certainly looks like the death star!

Trying to wrap my brain around a twelve mile wide, twelve mile high ridge around the planet, and am unable to. That's a helluva wall/barrier. What could cause such a thing to "naturally" occur? If it was "created" or built - why would it be made? It looks like it's part of the design, or if it was just randomly formed that way, it's very old, being the same color and texture as the surrounding environment, cratered, etc.

How wouldn't I love to know all these things... Being an amateur astronomer/astrophysicist wannabe... Iapetus, reveal thy secrets!!

How many of you have read this? Saturnian Cosmology

absolutely fascinating. A very long read, but it will definitely stir your curiosity about the mysteriousness of the solar system/universe, etc.

This guy, correct or not, has some theories that are literally out of this world.

He backs it up with some very thought-provoking evidence... using the axial tilts of the planets, etc, which is very compelling, plus the ancient art forms found all over the earth from various cultures, that coincide temporally and making connections using theories that connect the electric universe theory, and taking Immanuel Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision theory some steps further, he postulates that the solar system has undergone some serious re-organization over the millennia and has attempted to figure out what happened.

I have read few books that even approached how fascinating this subject matter is and have a great respect for this guy as a researcher. He's got several degrees, is an engineer and physicist and studies ancient artifacts and cultures.

I can't recommend it highly enough.

So if you are into this stuff, you can read the whole thing for free at the link I posted.

Ow wow, they have t-shirts available at the Saturnian site; nice.

I don't often buy t-shirts, but I might have to get me one of these, thanks!

that's part of the saturnian cosmology...

My theory is two large semi molten bodies impacted, squashing the midline ridge. They tumbled and settled, and the debris -which would be at the equitorial plane, would impact the basaltic surfaces, leaving whiter debris. Of course it will be at the leading and trailing orbital locations.

Seems kinda obvious if you just look at it.

I am not a scientist, I just play one on the internet.

The dark region is usually blamed on material from the "F" ring falling on the surface, and is considered a separate process from the formation of the equatorial ridge.

The ridge itself is an enigma. To me it looks like material that has flowed from the poles and piled up, like a melting ice cream cone with its mirror image melting below it. As the inner bounders settle into place, the loose and lighter outer materials sink into place over time. When the material "melting" off the poles meets at the equator, it builds higher.
