    Hello. I came across these videos a few months ago and have become fascinated by what the author suggests as to a better understanding of planets and their structure. They are only theories, of course, but are interesting nonetheless. The 54.55 mark of video 2 goes into a little detail about the hexagonal pattern of Saturn’s north pole. It will be interesting to see how far the author’s theories goes.
