Description

We’re told that all snowflakes are unique. But when you really think about them, snowflakes get even more interesting - as ice crystals forming in 3D space, why are snowflakes basically 2D?

We make science kits now! Go to http://UniverseUnboxed.com to learn more, order one online, or find them in a store near you.

Hosted by: Hank Green
