Do You Want To Build A Snowflake? Learn the Science [Video]


This really fascinating video on the “Science of Snowflakes” from It’s Okay To Be Smart covers some of the basics that most people know, but gets deep into the science in an easy to understand way. Are snowflakes as unique as everyone says? Well…yes, sort of. Check out the video to get the scoop – and don’t forget your scarf.

    Does anyone understand his explanation of the six-fold symmetry of a snowflake crystal? The angle between the hydrogen atoms is ~105 degrees, and for some water molecules the second hydrogen will be behind…therefore six-fold symmetry? I feel like he’s leaving out an important part of the explanation, and him painting circles does not fill that in for me.
