Caltech Physics Professor Advised Growing of Snowflakes for ‘Frozen’ Movie
Even with Spring in full bloom (cherry blossoms!) and Summer plans in the works, I could watch snowflakes grow all day every day! I love this line in the video below by Caltech Professor of Physics Dr. Kenneth Libbrecht,
At the end of the day I’m trying to understand how atoms and molecules fit together to form crystals and by studying snowflakes slowly you figure things out that are useful.
The book shown is The Snowflake: Winter’s Frozen Artistry, an impressive 144-page hardcover with lots of pictures, yes, but also more snowflake history than you ever thought possible and even the science behind photographing snowflakes.
