Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What do you guys think about the mysterious hexagon on Saturn? For those who don't know what I'm talking about, google this and check it out - satellites have seen a 1,600 mile across hurricane at the north pole of Saturn in the shape of a perfect hexagon! It rotates in this shape constantly, and has been there for over 20 years! (I believe there is even a video caught by the Cassini satellite of it that you can see online.)

So, what do you think it is? Aliens? I mean, really, its kind of creepy! Any explanations?

A: Dear Geo,

Did those darn Hexgonal Aliens get out of their cage again? I thought I locked it for SURE this time!

Maybe duct tape will work...

A: Dear square circle,

I found an explanation for you here.

But seriously, that is kind of creepy. My guess is as good as yours. Personally, I'm going to wait and see what the authoritative Weekly World News has to say about it.

A: Dear,

I read something saying that water spun in a bucket really fast will form similar geometric shapes. I don't know how true that is, and I don't have the equipment to try, but that's my best guess for now.

Kinda cool, huh? It's amazing how many mysteries are still out there.
