The science of snowflakes - Maruša Bradač

He admired the snowflakes and wrote: "Under the microscope, I found that snowflakes were miracles of beauty; and it seemed a shame that this beauty should not be seen and appreciated by others. Every crystal was a masterpiece of design and no one design was ever repeated...When a snowflake melted, that design was forever lost. Just that much beauty was gone, without leaving any record behind.”You can explore more about his life here. The physics of how snowflakes form is very complex and some researchers devote their entire life studying these.

One of them is the physicist Ken Libbrecht. Peer through a magnifying glass at a snowflake, and you’ll see an ice creation more elaborate than anything Martha Stewart could cut from folded paper. -Ed and Periodic Videos.
