Geometric Storm on Saturn

They say math is the universal language, and without it we would not be the technologically advanced species we are today. Now, Saturn has given us proof that math truly is everywhere in nature.


Thanks to the Cassini spacecraft, we can see with the upmost clarity the beauty of the geometric storm on the pole of Saturn. How the storm forms in a precise hexagon shape is unknown. What we do know is that this storm has been raging for a very long time!

Next time, if anyone asks you how many languages you know, always remember to include the language of math because it’s spoken even in space!
