Golf Sector 6
“GOLF SECTOR 6 is an easy-to-play, Flash-based golf game that lets you tee off on Saturn’s moons. It is based on some of our most stunning images returned from the high resolution cameras onboard the Cassini spacecraft that have been processed by CICLOPS and released to the public here on this website. Each of Saturn’s moons has its own weak gravity, which should keep things interesting, so be sure to take that into account when you make your swing! Just like golfing on Earth, the goal is to hit the ball into the hole — or in this case, the crater! — using the smallest number of swings.
And don’t worry about playing through or yelling, ‘FORE!’. The Saturn system is sparsely populated, and, in space, no on can hear you scream.”
