>>10565241>Thanks a lot for your advice. I don't have the money for a telescope but at the very least I'll try to obtain some binoculars, and see the planets with my own eyes. This might sound stupid, but do you know what the deal with other planets are - I mean, why do they exist at all? Sorry if this sounds stupid to ask, but I just don't understand how they came to be there, and how they could be so different from our own Earth? Can you explain what Saturn is for, and whether the hexagon storm at its pole has any significance like the conspiracy community interprets it?
There is no known answer to the question of "why;" most things simply just seem to be here because happenstance favored their creation.
In a less metapysical sense, when the Solar System began to coagulate out of the debris of previous generations of exploded stars and space dust, the system eventually developed into the one we see because of the force of gravity.
Saturn isn't "for" anything; it simply is. It's a large planet, made mostly of hydrogen and helium. The hexagon is a product of the way temperature and density affects flowing gasses. The way these systems change over time is so complex that there is no simple way of evaluating them. Figuring out how to do a better job simulating turbulent dynamics of fluids and gasses is on the cutting edge of simulation research, and no easy answers are forthcoming.
As far as hexagons go, imagine a bunch of circles. If you wanted to squeeze a bunch of circles tightly together but without overlapping them, while also allowing them to get squished and modified by the other surrounding circles equally, you'll end up with hexagons.
The Scientific Method's power is in being able to evaluate and determine how things work, and why they work, in exhausting detail. It does not exist to tell you why things should be a certain way, nor can it do so. It is very tempting to use Divinity to fill in those gaps, but the result of that is a "god of the gaps."
