Stunning images from NASA's Cassini spacecraft provide the first close-up, visible-light views of a massive hurricane churning around Saturn's north pole. According to NASA, the hurricane's eye is about 1,250 miles (2,000 kilometers) wide, 20 times larger than the average hurricane eye on Earth. Scientists believe the massive storm has been active for years. Scientists will use the hurricane on Saturn to study hurricanes on Earth that feed off warm ocean water. Meanwhile, a new research has revealed how Saturn keeps itself looking young.
