. All got three points, except Except Jean Valjean(1), drruv.sharma(1) and madhur(2)

Answer:

Quoting Logik’s detailed answer

1. Saturn’s moon Mimas.
Was earlier famous for being compared to a Death Star, owing to the similarity arising from the Herschel Crater.

Scientists working with NASA’s Cassini orbiter released the highest resolution heat map to date of daytime temperatures on the icy moon. The map unexpectedly revealed a pattern that’s the spitting image of the Pac-Man icon.

2. Bevshots – graphic representations of beers, wines and cocktails, a microscopic snapshot of the crystalline version of the drink. Artform.
Pioneered by this chap called Michael W. Davidson from the Optical Microscopy Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, of The Florida State University.

3. Isaiah Mustafa- The New Old Spice viral marketing campaign ( The Man Your Man Could Smell Like ) doing rounds. Impressive idea, well scripted.

    (1) The Cassini spacecraft in orbit around Saturn has caught an interesting new view of the tiny moon Mimas.
    The probe measured temperature differences across the object’s surface and produced a map that looks just like the 1980s Pac-Man video games icon.

    (2) Pictures of alcoholic drinks under a microscope

    a) Japanese Sake

    b) Russian Vodka

    c) Mexican Margarita
