Who's Walker? Who are Fountain and Larson? -- Zoe
English pronunciation [EP-uh-MEE-thee-us].
By analogy with Promethean, the adj. form is Epimethean (ep'-i-mee'-thee-un). kwami 2005 June 30 01:27 (UTC)
Please, check forQ Richard L. Walker Jr. (1938 - 2005) 
The NASA moons profile site give both these and another set of diameters on the same page. The other set is 144x108x98 km. Could someone with access to better data verify? kwami 09:55, 26 September 2005 (UTC)
I believe the shadow on the Voyager image is the F ring, but I'm going on memory here, and it's been a while since those pix came out! Please correct if I got it wrong. kwami 23:40, 18 December 2005 (UTC)
Next Closest Approach
The article gave the "next closest approach" as January 2006, which of course has already come and gone. I've temporarily switched it to give 2010, four years after the 2006 approach. It would be best if somebody who has the real numbers could fix it and give a more accurate time for the next closest approach. Joshua Nicholson 06:23, 12 June 2006 (UTC)
- I know this thread is dead, but 2010 has also come and gone, now, and to say that the "next closest approach was in 2010" is a bit confusing at best. Perhaps someone could take a look at this article and update it with the moons' next closest approach, or give a regular interval (if such exists)? Wabbott9 Tell me about it.... 02:06, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
- And the next, about which I have no data, approaches. Please, anybody have the 2015 date of closest approach? JDAWiseman (talk) 22:51, 13 February 2015 (UTC)
Spoken Wikipedia recording
Small moon's size
Someone on a Star Wars thread on Reddit compared its diameter to the first Death Star (140-160km), as evidence that because this solid small moon has .011 m/s/s surface gravity, the mostly hollow honeycomb that was the Death Star would have needed a gravity generator to make standard gravity, similar to the Millennium Falcon's artificial standard gravity. Not noteworthy in this article, as any ~150km diameter space rock would do, but posted here in case someone tries to add it. --188.8.131.52 (talk) 22:44, 7 April 2016 (UTC)
