I would like to know if the polar cap has ice like some of the other planets.

    I'd like to know if the polar cap is an 'island of stability' away from the worst of the storms. Might the presence of ice create a rare 'land mass'? And how much radiation do the poles encounter?

    If you stand at the North Pole you will spin in place rather than "circling". With that being said, I wonder if a gas planet' gas will behave the same way? Will it be much calmer from the rest of the planet if the heat from friction and gravity will be less? Will it look much more solid and conformed rather than the Wood grain look?

    I agree polar region would be awesome. I think Cassini should dive straight into the vortex!
