The science of snowflakes
One could say that snowflakes are simply frozen water — but if you compare a snowflake to an ice cube, you'll notice a big difference. Why are all snowflakes six-sided? Why are none of them exactly the same? And how do we ski on them? Maruša Bradač sheds light on the secret life of snowflakes. [Directed by Lucas Millard & Kate Stryker, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Seth S. Scott].
