A Conversation for Singing Saturn's Hexagonal Mystery
Hexagons on Saturn - Giant Bees?

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?
