You have to stop what you’re doing and check out this fascinating video by Veritasium on Dr. Ken Libbrecht, a snowflake expert. They take a deep-dive into the molecular structure of snowflakes, and explain how they’re created in an approachable way to understand.
Us skiing and snowboarding folks owe everything we love about our sports to snow, whether natural or manmade. So, why not learn more about that white fluffy stuff?
It was incredible to watch Dr. Libbrecht create snow crystals in a controlled environment. Also pretty neat that he’s made a career out of being the “snowflake consultant” for Disney’s smash-hit ‘Frozen’, and that his images have been used on stamps. Seems kind of nerdy that he’s devoted to his life to snowflakes, but his hustle is notable.
How does that saying go?
