The hexagon around the storm is amazing.  How could a circular storm create a hexagonal cloud border? Amazing stuff and Cassini, launched in 1997, has really produced.! So much data from so many different places and now working around Saturn for years to come and sending some of the most amazing photos of Saturn and her moons I have ever seen.

It didn't, the Hexagon is a preexisting pattern. Most likely magnetic in nature.

They have to interact in some way. The naration, after having listened again said the hexgon is a jet stream like formation so maybe I got it backwards and the hexagon formed the "hurricane"

I see what you mean. That the Hexagon formed this hurricane as if it were some type of metal particles. Fascinating really, that it is locked in the center.

NASA should be concentrating on cutting back spending on earth, instead of getting impressed with what's happening on Saturn. We have more problems back here when it comes to government spending.

It 's great thinkers like you that got us to the moon and back.

Why be concerned with what's going on off world, when we don't even have a handle or a clue with what's going on down here?
Millions that have added up to billions over the years...on whose money? One doesn't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out on whose backs these guys are riding on...

Believe what you want and I'll believe whatever I want...it's an open field, and
everyone is given a chance at making a home run...

Actually billions have added up to trillions but I suggest you start a thread on whether we should or shouldn't spend money on space exploration rather than hijack this one.  It's a relevant subject but off-topic here.  Post  link here and I'll join.

I have to agree with you Merc, this is off topic.

Why is it every planet but our own has storms like that?

Not all planets; no hurricanes on Mars, just planet wide dust storms, you need to have to have a decent atmosphere for big storms. Jupiter's Great Red Spot and Saturn's hurricane-like storm are both on giant gas planets; they are nearly ALL atmosphere. These storms continue for dozens, hundreds, perhaps thousands of years because they are trapped at one latitude or in the case of Saturn, at the pole and they do not encounter any land mass to disrupt them.
