Snowflakes under the microscope

Every person have heard saying that every snowflake is unique, but not every person can imagine the deepest beauty inside them. That’s exactly what the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center in Maryland did with a low temperature scanning electron microscope.

Now you are wondering, what they have found in this small piece of frozen ice crystal? Then, you must see these images and look at the structure of snow crystals in all shapes and configurations. Some of them look like alien architecture from a distant world, but everyone agrees that the shapes just get crazier and crazier.

Take a look, enjoy and after all, we are all not tired of snow just yet, right?
