Maybe Mimas is solid, but its core is irregular, like the shape of many asteroids.
Mimas always presents the same face to Saturn, just as the Moon does to Earth.
The authors of the new study used data from the Cassini probe orbiting Saturn to measure the libration of Mimas.
However, both the Moon and Mimas experience libration wobbling slightly and bringing part of the “far side” into view.
The final guess is also eminently reasonable: Mimas might have a partly liquid interior.
Mimas is in the plane of the rings, so they couldn't be obvious.
The others—Mimas (the first), Enceladus (the second), and Hyperion (the seventh)—are beyond the reach of all but large telescopes.Pleasures of the telescope|Garrett Serviss

Mimas had no atmosphere—how could the meteor sound off or burn up?
