Closer images of pluto cause concern to NASA scientists
Well, I wasn't limiting it to ice. Any crystalline structure with 6-fold symmetry is going to have natural fracture lines at 120 degrees. Bubbles (or other free-forming spherical shapes) will always meet at a 120-degree angle when three come into contact. There's also this interesting bit of synchronicity. Measuring by eye, the 137-degree angle doesn't look a whole lot different from a 120 degree angle.
