You're looking at a newly released 8-frame movie of Saturn's enigmatic "hexagon." It is the highest-resolution footage ever acquired of the massive six-sided maelstrom atop the ringed planet's north pole, and boy howdy is it gorgeous.
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has captured the first high definition video of the mysterious Saturn hexagon. It shows some fascinating details and features never observed before. But now, more than even, it looks like some kind of living alien organism looked through a microscope—except it's not, because this monster is…
This is the real color of Saturn's mysterious hexagon storm—a rotating cloud system located on its north pole, so big that it could swallow two Earths—as you would see it if you were orbiting the planet. Check out the full resolution images received from the Cassini spacecraft on October 11 and assembled by Val Klavans
Depths might not be the right expression, actually, as all of these photographs were taken from space, decades and decades ago. Russian rockets, aircraft carriers, secret military compounds—one legendary spy satellite saw it all from orbit.
Feast your eyes on one of the most puzzling planetary mysteries our solar system has to offer. In this photograph of Saturn's north pole, captured by NASA's Cassini spacecraft in 2009, clouds can be seen encircling the planet at about 77 degrees north latitude. Even at such a high parallel, the massive six-sided jet…
Scientists believe that fly eyes are perfectly shaped for manufacturing efficient solar cells. Specifically, copying the eye of the Blowfly would allow solar cells to "collect sunlight from a larger area than just light that falls directly on a flat surface."
Tokyo Flash watches are outlandish enough as is—so you can imagine how badass their concept design would be. This Hexagonal watch isn't real, but Tokyo Flash could make it so—with the method of telling the time surprisingly simple.
At Saturn's North pole sits a weather mystery: a giant hexagon formed by the path of a jet stream. It's a phenomenon that has remained largely unchanged for decades, at least, and scientists are trying to figure out why.
As part of the ongoing AU Design Project, Japanese communications company AU recently unveiled some promising new concepts for future phones. The AU Design Project is a department of AU responsible for making phones that are, well, just way way sexier than anything else on the market. The AU Design Project gave Japan…
