Saturn's Strange Hexagon Recreated In the Lab 103

cremeglace writes "Saturn boasts one of the solar system's most geometrical features: a giant hexagon encircling its north pole. Though not as famous as Jupiter's Great Red Spot, Saturn's Hexagon is equally mysterious.

More details, including a cool demo video, at ScienceNOW."
