Pi in the Sky
image by Richard Bosman
Apollo 10 astronauts called the Hypatia Rille recently but every image suggests new questions and interpretations. It looks like the crater pit on Pi is not exactly centered, and there are a number of similar sized craters nearby. Is it possible the pit is not volcanic but a chance impact?
