Cassini Images Bizarre Hexagon on Saturn
March 27, 2007

Pasadena, Calif. -- An odd, six-sided, honeycomb-shaped feature circling the entire north pole of Saturn has captured the interest of scientists with NASA's Cassini mission.

NASA's Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft imaged the feature over two decades ago. The fact that it has appeared in Cassini images indicates that it is a long-lived feature. A second hexagon, significantly darker than the brighter historical feature, is also visible in the Cassini pictures. The spacecraft's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer is the first instrument to capture the entire hexagon feature in one image.

"This is a very strange feature, lying in a precise geometric fashion with six nearly equally straight sides," said Kevin Baines, atmospheric expert and member of Cassini's visual and infrared mapping spectrometer team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. "We've never seen anything like this on any other planet. Indeed, Saturn's thick atmosphere where circularly-shaped waves and convective cells dominate is perhaps the last place you'd expect to see such a six-sided geometric figure, yet there it is."

It's National Velociraptor Awareness Month!

Velociraptor attack is the 3rd leading cause of death for men age 27-29. However, everyone must think about the implications of velociraptors: young and old, men, women and transgendered persons.

The American Society for Velociraptor Attack Prevention is a bi-partisan group of professionals, dedicated to the diffusion of knowledge concerning velociraptor attack prevention.

This is a cloud view of my poetry written over the last 5 years. (at least the ones I posted)
The larger the word the more times I used it.

my friend Mike was visiting us from Istanbul,
He brought me the accouterments for making Turkish coffee,
And some great Turkish coffee.

He then taught me how to make it.

He said that it is very hard to master and that a perfectly poured coffee has a thin layer of foam covering the top of the coffee completely.

Well, I did it!
Here it is, the perfectly poured Turkish coffee.

This is Music and dance that nears perfection!
