  1. This topic does not relate towards anything to what has been recently discovered. There is an exact hexagonal vortex at the northern pole of the planet. Discuss please?

  2. Hey Jamie if there discovering more moon’s around Saturn every day how come there are only 34 they should have found like over 100 this year and if it’s Saturn day’s even more should have been found.

  3. MAYBE- like the soap bubbles that when connected produce a 3 dimensional ‘hexagon’ – meaning each side has 6 sides to it, not meaning collectively. POSSIBLY, there COULD be a series of super cells (storms) just South of the North Pole, and making this Hexagon…..????

  4. How come the video says Saturn has 34 moons while the words (sorry for “words,” I’ve gone brain dead for a moment) say it has 60?
