Crater face

JPL’s PhotoJournal recently emitted a hi-res mosaic of Hyperion’s whacking great crater. What immediately struck me as I scrolled around the full-size JPEG of it was the paucity of round craters.

Also, that monster crater has to be the result of internal subsidence or something like that, as there is NFW you could slap Hyperion that hard with a bolide and leave ought but an expanding cloud of hot gravel afterwards.
