Winter is coming! Get into the fireside/hot cocoa/lost mitten season with this post from PopSci that reviews a new book on Snowflakes: The Snowflake: Winter’s Frozen Artistry by Kenneth Libbrecht and Rachel Wing.
The Snowflake: Winter’s Frozen Artistry by Kenneth Libbrecht and Rachel Wing gives us all a close look at snowflakes, no matter where you spend your winters. And yes, there’s that cliché that snowflakes are unique and special and blah blah blah, but seriously, you probably had no idea snowflakes came in this many shapes and sizes. Thankfully the authors are well-placed to be your guides to the tiny world of snowflakes. Libbrecht is a physics professor at Caltech, where he studies ice crystal growth. Wing is a park ranger in Monrovia, California, and works with Libbrecht as a snowflake chaser.
