Submission + - Saturn's Strange Hexagon Recreated in the Lab (sciencemag.org)

cremeglace writes: Saturn boasts one of the solar system's most geometrical features: a giant hexagon encircling its north pole.

Now researchers have recreated this formation in the lab using little more than water and a spinning table—an important first step, experts say, in finally deciphering this cosmic mystery. More details, including a cool demo video, at ScienceNOW.
