The NASA Cassini probe has gotten some very up, close and personal views of Saturn. The hurricane in Saturn has been captured by the probe with high fidelity. Such photos of a different world from ours are proof of Einstein’s dictum that science is the ultimate source of the mysterious and religious.

Massive Hurricane Discovered on Saturn by NASA

Saturn is the most beautiful and exotic of planets. The smaller-than-Jupiter planet has a ring around it that makes it a source of fascination to so many. The Roman festivals known as Saturnalia were named after this wonderful planet. NASA just recently sent its Cassini probe into orbit around this pretty planet and caught some of the meteorological activities while they were taking place on its surface. Of particular importance was the hurricane that was in full motion at the North Pole of Saturn. NASA has released on its official site, the high resolution pictures that clearly showing the hurricane to be many times larger than those found on earth.

The rotation of the hurricane is in a hexagonal manner, which has baffled researchers at NASA . They have seldom seen such a thing in the past. It breaks the mold of the expected in the natural world. According to Andrew Ingersoll, who is one of the team associates “We did a double take when we saw this vortex.” This hurricane will be observed in order to gain a better understanding of similar hurricanes on earth. Seeing the disaster on Saturn it appears size does matter. It is so huge that it defies the imagination. And whereas Saturn has a hydrogen-based atmosphere it also has a small amount of water vapor which sustains this massive hurricane.
 
The polar hurricane is fixed at its site for the time being. It has nowhere else to go. The scientists have their opinions which include the one that this planetary catastrophe has been going on like this since many years. They may be right. The orbital peregrinations of Cassini have yielded some very heavenly and hypnotizing pictures of the hurricane in its wild fury. This is proof that science is not dull and dry. In fact, the truth dug up via scientific endeavor is stranger and more interesting than fiction.
