A Conversation for Singing Saturn's Hexagonal Mystery

Hexagons on Saturn - Giant Bees?

Post 1


Perhaps it is not so surprising to find naturally occurring hexagons.
On earth, most crystals are six sided. Ice crystals, snowflakes, are six sided. It's to do with spatial partion - the most efficient way to fill a space. Bees have discovered, by trial & error no doubt, that the strongest and most efficient way to build honeycombs is by using hexagons.
Does this indicate a possible explanation for the mystery on Saturn?
