Pasadena, CA – A monster storm that erupted on Saturn in late 2010 – as large as any storm ever observed on the ringed planet — has already impressed researchers with its intensity and long-lived turbulence.
A new paper in the journal Icarus reveals another facet of the storm’s explosive power: its ability to churn up water ice from great depths.
