Found on Saturn's ice vosmidesyatikilometrovye landslides

Scientists were able to detect giant vosmidesyatikilometrovye landslides on the surface of one of Saturn's moons - Iapetus. This satellite, unlike the majority of other celestial bodies, is believed to astrophysics, composed almost entirely of water ice.

"We think that these marks on the surface of Iapetus is the result of similar processes on Earth and Mars," - said the head of the research group at Washington University in St. Louis Kelsey Singer. The surface of Iapetus is more reminiscent of terrestrial rocks, but there is much colder and much less than the acceleration due to gravity, which is why such a large-scale and formed avalanches.
